Abstract

In United Lincolnshire NHS Hospitals Trust v CD and Guys and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust (GSTT) and South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLAM) v R, the Court of Protection was asked to make anticipatory and contingent declarations relating to the obstetric care and mode of delivery for currently capacitous women who were near to their due date but not yet in labour. In this case note I explore the judges’ reasoning on the legal basis for these declarations. In so doing, I consider the wider implications of employing this seemingly new addition to the Court of Protection’s armoury.
