Mental health review tribunals

Mental Health Tribunals are an important safeguard for anyone detained in hospital or subject to Community Treatment under the Mental Health Act. They are independent of the mental health system and the NHS, and have the power to discharge patients from hospital. A tribunal gives you the opportunity to put forward your case and make your wishes known; though they are unlikely to make decisions on particular kinds of treatment.

At QualitySolicitors Knight Polson we regularly represent people at mental health tribunals. With our in-depth knowledge of mental health law, we can help you put forward the best possible case to ensure that your wishes are taken into consideration. Where appropriate, we can request independent psychiatric reports to support your challenge.

We know that talking about health issues isn’t always easy but our friendly, understanding solicitors will put you at ease. We don’t believe in legal jargon and will always explain everything simply and clearly, answering any questions you may have.

Mental health patients can often access our services free of charge using legal aid and with our free initial assessment promise you can call us for a chat before deciding what action to take. Telephone us to find out if you are entitled to apply for Legal Aid. If you’re unable to visit our offices, we may be able to  visit you, either in hospital or somewhere else that’s convenient for you.

So if you’d like to find out more about the mental health tribunal process, call us today on 02392 801 102 or email us to discuss how we can help you.
