The Telegraph reports today here that there have been 2312 complaints about the Court of Protection in its first year. This seems a lot. It may be that the balance has swung a bit too firmly towards protecting the vulnerable, although family members will often have gripes in this situation, because of its nature it’s distressing and frustrating. Note the comment that the OPG charged over £23million in fees for overseeing the work of deputies.
