Appeal & Discharge

Most individuals detained in hospital under the Mental Health Act 1983, or who are subject to a section in the community, have the right to apply to the First-Tier Tribunal for a review of their case. In some instances, their Nearest Relatives can also apply. We have a number of experienced lawyers who can advise patients and their Nearest Relatives of their rights and who can represent them at the Tribunal. We can also assist in appealing the Decisions of the First-Tier Tribunal, and can represent clients in the Upper-Tier Tribunal. Our experienced lawyers are Accredited by the Law Society to represent clients at the Tribunal.

Whether you are seeking to be discharged from hospital, transferred elsewhere, or to be given greater access to the community, we will approach your case with sensitivity and understanding, and we will provide you with quality advice and representation.
