Lasting power of attorney - Personal welfare

If some day you are no longer able to look after your own health and welfare (i.e. your social and healthcare needs), this 'Lasting power of attorney - Health and welfare' will give that power to another person, called your 'attorney'. Once the power comes into effect, your attorney (or attorneys) will have the legal authority to act on your behalf in matters relating to your health and welfare, subject to any restrictions you place on them. Your attorney(s) will only be able to act when you lack the capacity to do so yourself, for example, if you are ill, unconscious or because of the onset of a condition such as dementia. This document can only be used in England or Wales.
