Compulsory treatment

A compulsory treatment order (CTO) is used by healthcare professionals to ensure that mental health patients receive the treatment they need - even when they’re unable to make their own decisions.

Understandably, it can be upsetting when other people are making decisions on your behalf - particularly if you don’t agree with them. If you or a loved one has received a compulsory treatment order, we can help you understand what it means and explain what you need to do next.

If you wish to appeal against a compulsory treatment order, or would like to request changes to your treatment, we can represent you at a mental health review tribunal. Although we can’t prevent compulsory treatment, we can help to ensure that your views are taken into consideration when planning your treatment.

We understand that talking about health issues isn’t always easy but our friendly solicitors will put you at ease and are here to answer any questions you may have. Mental health patients can often use our services free of charge and if you can’t get to our offices, we may be able to visit you. So if you’d like to talk to us about compulsory treatment, call us today.
