West Leicestershire CCG is proud to support the My Adult - Still My Child website - a website which is designed to for parents who have a child who has legally become an adult, but still needs support and may not have the ability under the Mental Capacity Act to make decisions on their medical treatment. It is aimed at those new to making Best Interest Decisions and especially those caring for a young person in transition to adult services. Packed with Frequently Asked Questions and other support for parents, it's a valuable resource for parents/carer and professionals
Parents and carers from Rainbows Hospice Loughborough and Together for Short Lives ensured that the website was co-produced and inspired by those who have experienced decision making within health and welfare settings and felt unprepared or challenged without such guidance.
