If the patient is not admitted
When the patient is not admitted to hospital, a package of follow-up care needs to be agreed with the patient and nearest relative, if appropriate. Arrangements may need to be made to contact mental health or social work teams during working hours to inform them of the assessment and/or to make a referral.
This is not intended to be a comprehensive guide to the Mental Health Act. Reference should be made to the relevant Code of Practice, which is available from the Stationery Office, http://www.hmso.gov.uk
