Following the decision in the Devon Partnership case concerning the lawfulness of virtual personal assessments required under the MHA, NHS England and DHSC guidance has now been amended to remove reference to examinations being undertaken virtually – personal examination means personal examination.
The decision means that applications for detention under sections 2,3,4 and 7 require the relevant professionals to be physically in the same place as the individual being assessed, notwithstanding the increased risks associated with this during the pandemic, for them to be lawful.
The updated guidance now reflects the High Court’s decision. You can view the updated guidance dated 26 January 2021 here.
Do get in touch if you require advice and support in relation to remote assessments or applications.
