Patient detained for a period of 1 year Form 12

If the decision is made that the patient still meets the criteria for detention for treatment the person and nearest relative should be advised accordingly. In this instance the two Part II doctors should jointly complete and sign Form 12. This allows the person to be detained for a period of up to 1 year. The patient and his nearest relative should again be advised of their rights including the right to appeal the detention to the Mental Health Review Tribunal. LINK TO FORM 12
