New Mental Health Act code of practice

A revised code of practice for the Mental Health Act 1983 provides guidance for professionals.

The code shows professionals how to carry out their roles and responsibilities under the Mental Health Act 1983, to ensure that all patients receive high quality and safe care.

There have been significant changes in legislation, case law, policy and professional practice since the last code was published in 2008.

The revised code aims to provide stronger protection for patients and clarify roles, rights and responsibilities. This includes:

  • involving the patient and, where appropriate, their families and carers in discussions about the patient’s care at every stage
  • providing personalised care
  • minimising the use of inappropriate blanket restrictions, restrictive interventions and the use of police cells as places of safety.

Safeguarding practitioners: information sharing advice

Source By: GOV.UK

This advice is for front-line practitioners and senior managers providing services to:

  • children
  • young people
  • parents
  • carers

It helps practitioners and their managers decide when and how to share personal information legally and professionally.

It might also be helpful for practitioners working with adults who are responsible for children who may be in need.

This replaces ‘Information sharing: guidance for practitioners and managers’ (2008).

Departmental advice helps you understand how to comply with the law or explains what our policies mean in practice. You do not have to follow the advice.
