Medical Treatment Without Consent
Aimed at those who wish to specialise in mental health law and tribunal work, this course willl examine when medical treatment can be carried out without consent under the Mental Health Act 1983, as amended, and will provide viewers with a valuable insight into this area of practice.
In accordance with the SRA standards for delivery of client services, whereby all practitioners must have “proper regard to your client's mental capacity or other vulnerability...”, this course will also be of interest to all solicitors, irrespective of their specialist area of law.
During this bite size session, lecturer Steph Barber will discuss treatment under s57, 58 and 58A, urgent treatment under s62 and the importance of treatment plans.
Please note, whilst this session touches on the issues, it does not include the exceptions in relation to Community Treatment Orders.
