Supervised Community Treatment Recall

Supervised Community Treatment Recall is a type of ACTIVITY GROUP.

This is when a PATIENT is recalled into hospital for treatment whilst on Supervised Community Treatment under section 17A of the Mental Health Act 1983 as amended by Mental Health Act 2007. The decision to recall a PATIENT to hospital will be made by the Mental Health Responsible Clinician.

If the Supervised Community Treatment Recall period is less than 72 hours, the recall will not automatically end the Supervised Community Treatment. If a PATIENT is recalled and the time in hospital goes over 72 hours, they must either have their Supervised Community Treatment revoked or continue the Supervised Community Treatment. This will either happen by the PATIENT being discharged from hospital or they could continue staying in hospital as an informal PATIENT but remain on Supervised Community Treatment.

A Supervised Community Treatment Recall can end with the PATIENT being discharged from hospital back to the original Community Treatment Order or with the revocation of the Community Treatment Order should the Mental Health Responsible Clinician see fit and the PATIENT meets the criteria for detention.
