A Health & Care (formerly Health & Welfare) Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) allows the appointed attorney(s) to make decisions around the donor’s (the person who made the LPA) medical and daily personal needs from washing, dressing and eating, right through to moving to a nursing home, and even relating to life sustaining treatment.
Unlike a Finance LPA (which can be used as soon as it is registered), a Health & Care LPA can only be used by the appointed attorney(s) if the donor has lost capacity.
How much does a Health & Care LPA cost?
QLAW charges just £250 (+VAT) for a Health & Care LPA. That includes everything from drafting the forms for you, to being your Certificate Provider, to lodging the LPA with the Office of the Public Guardian (OPG) where it is formally registered.
Any Court fee is payable by you separately as a ‘disbursement’. This is payable whether you use a solicitor to deal with the LPA or not.
