As the BIA involved in a recent DoLS authorisation we have been instructed to work on, we would like to ask you what you think of the Asist IMCA Paid Representative service.


It is important that we obtain your views so that we can improve how we work with the relevant person, with BIA's and others involved in process.

* 1. What impact did the Paid Representative have on this case?

* 2. Did the relevant person benefit from the involvement of a Paid Representative advocate?

* 3. Did the Paid Representative support the relevant person to appeal their authorisation using a Part 8 review?

* 4. Did the Paid Representative support the relevant person to challenge their authorisation through a section 21a appeal?

* 5. Is there anything that you would change about the Paid Representative service?

* 6. How highly would you rate the quality of the Paid Representative report received, in terms of clarity, content and submission time scales.

* 7.

The Paid Representative helped to ensure the decision making process was in line with the Mental Capacity Act 2015 and the least restrictive option principle


* 8. Do you have any other comments, questions, or concerns?

The information obtained from this survey is analysed and used for statistical and monitoring purposes.  It will be also be shared with Staffordshire County Council and Stoke On Trent City Council at the IMCA Steering Group.
