What is the Court of Protection Case Management Pilot?

Wednesday, 3rd August 2017

"What is it?

The Case Management Pilot scheme was to operate from 1 September 2016 to 31 August 2017 however, the Court of Protection have recently decided to continue the piloted procedures. The Court of Protection Rules and accompanying Practice Directions are to be revised and consolidated before the end of the year and therefore the pilot schemes have been extended until the consolidated Rules are in force.

The Case Management Pilot sets out 3 pathways for Court of Protection proceedings. The 3 pathways are:

  1. Property and Affairs;
  2. Health and Welfare; and
  3. A hybrid pathway for cases that have elements of both Property and Affairs and Health and Welfare.

When does it apply?

The Case Management Pilot applies to all proceedings started in the Court of Protection unless they fall within the specified categories, including but not limited to:

  1. Uncontested applications;
  2. Applications for statutory will and gifts; and
  3. Applications made by the Public Guardian.

Therefore contested Deputyship applications will fall under the rules of the Case Management Pilot."
