Health and Social care Act 2012:
This act allows clinicians to have more control over shaping the NHS and where and how money is spent within the service. Also, the Act allows patients to have more involvement within the NHS in general and with their own care, being able to choose which service suits their needs best. The act places more management on local authorities to join up local services to the NHS services. The act overall aim is to make the NHS and the Health and Social care system work more transparently and towards patients’ best interests. Allowing patients to be able to choose the service that suits them best will reduce the likelihood of support failing and the individual coming to harm.
Mental Capacity Act 2005:
The main purpose of the mental capacity act of 2005 is to endorse and safeguard choice making within a lawful framework . The act does this by promoting people to make decisions independently when possible, and by safeguarding people who lack capacity by giving them a flexible system that puts the individual at the centre of the decision-making processes. . There are several reasons a person may lack capacity including dementia, stroke, severe learning disability, brain injury, unconsciousness, sudden accident or mental health illness. A person cannot be assumed that they do not have the capacity to make decisions because they have a medical condition or a disability, a person must be given support to make decisions before anyone treats them as not having the mental capacity. If a person is found to lack mental capacity to make decisions, it is still important to involve the person in decision making. . The act is put in place when a person cannot either communicate a decision across even with help, or they cannot make a safe decision which will lead them to harm. Then an attorney (normally a family member) will oversee making decisions in the best interests for that person.

The Care Act 2014:
The Care Act of 2014 should make sure that people receive the services they require before their care needs become more serious, have access to high quality, appropriate services which they can choose from and can get information and advice to be able to make good decisions about their care and support. Allowing people to be able to access support before their needs become more serious reduces the likelihood of a person coming to harm. These laws allow the health and social care system to be more focused on the people who receive the care not the organisations and people who provide the care. The Care Act allows authorities to be able to follow a person’s journey through the care and support system be able to focus on support for everyone and allow people to have independence for longer.
