TSF Consultants are the UK’s leading provider of independent mental capacity assessments to the legal profession. We have a network of assessors across the UK and specialise in assessments for LPA’s (including certificate providers), CoP3’s, Testamentary capacity and Contentious Probate. We also provide litigation friends, retrospective assessments of capacity, assessments of capacity for litigation and have extensive experience of working with clients that have an acquired brain injury.
All of our assessors are currently practising mental health professionals with at least 3 years’ experience of assessing mental capacity in line with the MCA and associated guidance and are all trained in the application of relevant case law (for example Banks vs Goodfellow). They also all have full PI cover and have a current CRB check (enhanced).
At TSF Consultants we are aware of the need for robust reports to accompany our assessments and as such have developed our own unique templates that enable us to provide some of the most comprehensive reports of capacity available. To date, our reports have proven so robust that they have yet to be successfully challenged in a Court of Law.
We also realise that any delay in assessment has potential far reaching consequences for all involved. That is why we pride ourselves on providing a fast efficient service and aim to complete assessment and associated reports within 10 working days of introduction to the client.
