A Hospital Managers’ Hearing is a panel of three specialist lay members who review the need for continued detention under the Mental Health Act. Hospital Managers have the power to discharge a patient from detention.

If your Section has been renewed, your case must be referred to the Hospital Mangers for a review. Additionally, a request for a Hearing may be made at any time.

Our advice and assistance is usually free of charge under the Legal Help Scheme, subject to a means assessment.
