The practice and procedure of the Mental Health Review Tribunal will be substantially altered following the creation of a new First Tier Tribunal on 3 November 2008. The new Health Education and Social Care Chamber will comprise three existing tribunals including the Mental Health Review Tribunal. This change follows significant amendments to the mental health law as a result of the Mental Health Act 2007.

This new publication will provide a guide to the new law and procedure and will be a highly practical reference work for all those appearing before the tribunal and for tribunal members themselves. Detailed explanatory commentary about the organisation, procedure and jurisdiction of the Tribunal will be followed by an analysis of Tribunal powers in relation to both non-offender and offender patients.

In addition to explanatory commentary the work will be supplemented by a host of relevant materials including legislation and codes of practice, providing a one-stop-shop for tribunal members and those appearing before the Tribunal.
