Please read It appears UK may be acting illegally per se in enforcing non voluntary mental treatment and is in any event by doing so is in breach of HRA.
Our present system gives total control to for profit private hospitals the use of which are increasing- PRIORY/CYGNET, to decide the most profitable treatment ,and that is to detain for as long as possible and enforce as many drugs as possible without regard to outcomes, patient or their family.
This must stop. it is also bleeding the NHS dry of public money- 20% of whole NHS budget, to make profit and injure.
The decision of the European Court of Human Rights in X v Finland (Application no. 34806/04; judgment of 3 July 2012) makes significant new law concerning the provision of mandatory psychiatric treatment. It is at best highly doubtful that the approach in the Mental Health Act 1983, where compulsory treatment flows from detention automatically and with limited distinct procedural and substantive safeguards, is consistent with Article 8 of the ECHR.
