Is there anything in law that provides protection to someone sectioned under section 3 of the mental health act so that the person can receive general healthcare that someone who isn’t sectioned can get access to?
Aspects of my father’s health were neglected when he was sectioned. But most importantly he was prevented access to the COVID vaccine when invited to attend for it by the NHS. Then he caught COVID and died from it. Rather ironically we found out after his death his detention was invalid due to the high court judgement about remote assessment.
So we could have taken him for the vaccine ourselves in hindsight.
