Patients' experience of Mental Health Tribunals, Report of Administrative Justice and Tribunal's

My heart bleeds when I see vulnerable patients being represented very badly

We received a letter today from a local Trust.  This said that they have been receiving requests from patients about the qualifications of legal representatives advertising their services for Tribunal representation, and whether they are members of the Law Society Panel.  TheTrust was seeking further information to be supplied to them so that their patients could "make an informed choice" about the person who would be representing them at their Mental Health Review Tribunal.
 

Patients' experiences of the First-tier Tribunal (Mental Health)

This is theReportof a joint pilot project of the “Administrative Justice and Tribunals Council” and the “Care Quality Commission”. It is hot off the press -published in March 2011- and makes very interesting reading for all those involved in the Mental Health system, and is essential reading for Mental Health Lawyers. What makes it different from other studies and reports into the Tribunal system is that it turns the focus on the experiences of the Patients themselves who are of course the most important people in the whole process, yet so often their views are overlooked or disregarded.
