— Salmon appealed against the restriction order. His RC gave evidence that a restriction order "is unlikely to provide any additional safeguards as compared to those provided by a CTO". The Court of Appeal agreed that the procedure for recall would follow a similar route whether or not a restriction order was made, but noted that a restriction order "would place an additional restriction on discharge from hospital" and therefore "focuses on precautionary measures before discharge rather than the procedure to be adopted after the appellant has been discharged". The appeal was dismissed.
