Mental Health Conditional Discharge Period

Description

A Mental Health Conditional Discharge Period  is an ACTIVITY GROUP.

A Mental Health Conditional Discharge Period:

  • Starts when a mental health tribunal or the Secretary of State decides that a PATIENT, who is detained under section 37/41 of the Mental Health Act, can be discharged from the care of a Health Care Provider  subject to conditions which must be adhered to.

If the PATIENT does not adhere to the conditions then they may be recalled to hospital, this would end the Mental Health Conditional Discharge Period.

  • Ends where the PATIENT receives absolute discharge from either the mental health tribunal or the Secretary of State, or the PATIENT  dies.
