Mental Health Trial Leave

A Mental Health Trial Leave is a type of LEAVE.

Mental Health Trial Leave occurs when a PATIENT using a secure Hospital Bed in a WARD spends a period of time in a less secure Hospital Bed in a different WARD on a trial basis.

For a PATIENT liable to be detained in hospital under Part II of the Mental Health Act 1983 and as amended by the Mental Health (Patients in the Community) Act 1985, Mental Health Trial Leave is granted through the use of Mental Health Leave of Absence.
