Hello, firstly I am sorry to hear about this situation as it cannot be easy for you. In relation to your question, in the first instance I would simply write to the OPG and ask them to send you copies. If they refuse to do this then you can ask them to provide you their application for an information request which is governed by the General Data Protection Regulations where you have the right to see all data about yourself. However, to also put a broader response to your question there is an alternative option for you which would also solve your first problem also, please allow me to explain.... You have the option to ask the court the appoint a guardian for either or both of your parents if they both lack capacity and this may help you ensure that hate right decisions are being made. The court will considers what would be I the best interest of the situation. You would, of course, have to provide evidence and reason as to why you wish to have power (or who ever you wish to appoint). If the OPG find in your mother's favour through their investigations you can still ask the court to make a decision. I won't pretend that this would be an easy process as you will require to submit evidence and your mother may (or may not) oppose the request then the court would look at evidence supplied by all parties. If you wished to have the OPG's records then you can ask the court to have them released for consideration of evidence. When evidence is supplied in court proceedings they will be disclosed to all interested parties which would include yourself. Hopefully you can have this dealt with simply by making a request to the OPG however I thought it would be advisable to give you advice on the court options as well. If you require a solicitor in the future you can find a list of them on the Law Society webpage which is as follows; https://solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk/ I hope that this has helped.
