“…Despite the current restrictions, it is imperative that justice continues to be served and is open…”
“…The hearing I observed gave me faith in the system and makes me believe that if things ever got to the Court of Protection, his rights would be respected…”
“…As a nurse my main focus is that the person remains at the centre of everything. It was so reassuring to see that this also was the primary focus within a formal court hearing for Mr Justice Hayden…”
“…like many, I’ve been troubled by the potential effects of the current crisis on vulnerable people, including those who lack capacity. All the more reason, then, to support the goals of open justice and bear witness to the profound decisions now being made remotely in the Court of Protection…”
“…This hearing demonstrated to me the way in which the Court of Protection can work very effectively to enable people’s voices to be heard…”
“I think I was left with more questions after the hearing had concluded than before it had begun. I could see justice being done. I could hear justice being done. But, hand on heart, I can’t say I fully understood the justice being done. The steps being made towards transparency in justice are very positive but there’s still some way to go.”
