I have a case where the patient’s NR was his father. His father was displaced as NR in 2019 following NR displacement proceedings in the County Court. The Local Authority were appointed as NR.
His dad passed away in 2023.
The client is currently on a section 2 and is approaching a section 3 assessment.
Does the s.29 NR displacement order remain valid despite the NR who was displaced passing away or does the s.29 order lapse given the father’s death and then the AMHP should identify his NR as the next relative in the list? The client has a brother who would be next in the list if the order has lapsed.
Any help would be much appreciated.
