1st December Updates to the MHA - what needs to happen?

Interested in understanding how people are approaching the updated statutory wording. How if at all people are going to update their paper versions of the forms to include the new wording?

I’ve added the relevant regulations to Mental Health Law Online here: Mental Health (Hospital, Guardianship and Treatment) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2020.

Feel free to add any useful commentary or resources here on the forum.

Editable Word documents and printable PDFs (the old forms with the new wording added) are now available on MHLO here: Mental Health Act 1983 Statutory Forms.

Here is some guidance: DHSC, ‘Electronic communication of statutory forms under the Mental Health Act’ (27/11/20).
