From the legal basis for seclusion to the meaning of 'hospital', and from the Bournewood case to the 'long leash', this book addresses the most significant controversies in mental health law of the last few years.
Taking its title from an official report about one particularly unfortunate patient, the book contains David Hewitt's key writings on the subject. Those writings, which first appeared in publications such as The Times and the New Law Journal, are here collected together for the first time.
This book will be of assistance to anyone who is subject to or works with the Mental Health Act, and to those with an interest in social policy and the process by which it is applied or reformed.
