Mental health review tribunals

Mental health review tribunals

There may be times when you disagree with the treatment which you, or a loved one, are receiving as a mental health patient. If this happens, you have the right to challenge the decisions at a mental health review tribunal. A tribunal gives you the opportunity to put forward your case and make your wishes known.

At Mander Cruickshank Solicitors we regularly represent people at mental health review 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 necessary, we can request individual 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 first advice promise you can call us for a chat before deciding what action to take. If you’re unable to visit our offices, we can often 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 review tribunal process, call us today on 0333 2029 321 and to discuss how we can help you.
