Their main function is to review the cases of compulsorily detained patients & decide whether or not such patients can be discharged. The Mental Health Review Tribunal has the responsibility of hearing applications or references concerning people detained under the Mental Health Act. The Tribunal members are appointed by the Department of Constitutional Affairs. Based in Leeds we are ideally situated to service the various establishments in the Northern Region but we also travel throughout the UK to assist clients.

In a number of these cases the firm have had cause to engage Counsel and experts in the field. Consequently we have in some very serious cases shown that evidence from Prosecution witnesses, including Police witness, which prima facie appeared damning, was in fact wrong and/or unsafe thereby variously securing acquittal or reduced penalty.
