What we do

We’re responsible for handling applications for the discharge of patients detained in psychiatric hospitals.

We also handle applications to change community treatment orders and the conditions placed on a ‘conditional discharge’ from hospital.

Who we are

We are part of the Health, Education and Social Care Chamber, one of 7 chambers of the First-tier Tribunal which settles legal disputes and is structured around particular areas of law.
