Who is the Nearest Relative and What is Their Role
This bite size session will examine the role of the nearest relative within the Mental Health Act 1983, as amended. Consideration will be given to who the nearest relative is, and how this is determined and the circumstances in which the role of the nearest relative is relevant.
During this webinar viewers will explore the circumstances in which the nearest relative’s role can be delegated and the process for doing so. In addition, the powers afforded to the nearest relative and the displacement and appointment of the nearest relative will also be discussed.
The session will offer invaluable insight for those specialising in mental health law and tribunal work, but will also be of interest to those in other areas of practice who need to be able to demonstrate an understanding of mental health issues.
