Finally, in the case of R (Afework) v London Borough of Camden , EWHC 1637 (administrator) was asked to consider whether a head roof could fall under the definition without more, but decided that it could not be. He noted that the association of the word “after” with “care” meant that the benefits in question were related to hospital detention and should relate to the reason for the detention in the hospital. S.117 would only require accommodation if: (i) the need for housing is a direct consequence of why the ex-patient was arrested; (ii) the requirement for a strengthened specialized placement to take into account the immediacy of the original state; and (iii) the ex-patient is placed on an involuntary person (in the sense of disability) in the dwelling that results from the state of origin. The Care Act amends s.117 MHA 1983 and will for the first time contain a definition of what includes “follow-up services.” It changes the first two requirements of Mostyn J and eliminates above all the third all together. It now defines “follow-up services” as services that (i) respond to a need arising from or related to a person`s mental disorder; and (ii) to reduce the risk of deterioration of the person`s mental state (and thus reduce the risk that the person who needs to be readmitted to the hospital to treat the disease) will be readmitted). In this article, I will focus in particular on the changes made to Section 117 of the Mental Health Act 1983 (MHA) by Section 75 of the Care Act 2014. Section 75 makes 3 substantive changes to S.117, as described below. The choice of accommodation (section 75.6) The last major change in monitoring services is that the Secretary of State is authorized by a new s.117A to adopt regulations requiring a local authority to respect a P preference for certain accommodations, P paying an obligation when the preferred accommodation is higher than the usual fees of the authority. In accordance with the obligation of Item 117, the Commission is entitled to make direct payments to the person concerned. Definition of “follow-up services”Section 117 of MHA 1983 requires local authorities and GCs to jointly provide “follow-up services” to patients upon discharge from hospital, but the Mental Health Act of 1983 (amended) does not specify what “follow-up” is.
The courts, including the House of Lords, have been repeatedly asked to present a definition. 2. Council staff currently working at OPCMHT (Older People`s Community`s Mental Health Team) return to local teams and Council staff currently working on the Adult Community Mental Health Team will be installed at Tolworth Hospital with sWLSTG staff to promote coordinated care (Ref Option 3b) paragraph 14 of the report).
