The ability of a next of kin to make decisions on your behalf if you lose capacity can vary depending on the jurisdiction and specific circumstances. In England and Wales this is not a specific legal right unless the individual is appointed under a power of attorney.
Simply designating someone as your next of kin does not grant them legal authority to make decisions for you. This is a Myth.
