PoAs to be processed this week

Jul 09, 2024

This week we will process the following PoAs:

  • Electronic (EPOAR) submissions received on 20/09/2023
  • Postal submissions received around 06/11/2023.
  • An expedited registration service is available for PoAs that are to be processed urgently. If your request is granted the expedited PoA will usually be processed within five working days. There is no need to contact us to ask for the status of the PoA, as this may inadvertently delay the PoA from being processed on time.

    The examples below outline the type of urgent situations that meet the criteria of the expedited registration service.

    The granter has:

  • subsequently lost capacity and urgent decisions require to be made;
  • been admitted to hospital and urgent action requires to be taken;
  • requires to be moved from hospital with a care package or into a care home;
  • is at risk of financial harm as they cannot act in their own interests to pay bills, care fees etc. or to undertake a financial assessment following release from hospital.

    Please note that if an EPOAR submission is to be expedited, you must complete the full process including paying the fee before requesting the PoA is considered for expedited processing.
