Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

The Adults with Incapacity (Specified Medical Treatments) (Scotland) Regulations 2002 make provision in relation to the medical treatment of adults with incapacity. They specify certain medical treatments to which the authority to treat under section 47(2) of the Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Act 2000 shall not apply and authorise the carrying out of such treatments but only in accordance with the provisions of the Regulations.

This instrument amends those 2002 Regulations (with effect from 1st July 2002 – the same day as those Regulations come into force) so as to remove neurosurgery for mental disorder from the list of medical treatments to which the authority under section 47(2) will not apply.
