How to set up a Power of Attorney

In England, you can choose to set up a power of attorney for health and welfare matters.

This should be someone who you trust to act on your behalf when making decisions about your health, and can only be used if you are unable to make these decisions on your own.

You can fill out the form online or call the Office of the Public Guardian on 0300 456 3000 and ask for a paper copy to be posted to you.
