A foreign curator or other authorised person duly appointed by a foreign court may sue in his own name and that of the patient for the recovery of the patient's property1, but the court has discretion as to directing the property to be handed over to the curator or other authorised person, although an order will generally be made2. Appointment of a foreign curator does not displace the jurisdiction of the English court to determine what course of action is in the best interests of the person concerned3.
