Since 3/11/08, when most of the changes made by the Mental Health Act 2007 came into force, new statutory forms have had to be used.

In England, forms must comply with the Mental Health (Hospital, Guardianship and Treatment) (England) Regulations 2008. Note that some errors in the regulations have been corrected by the Mental Health (Hospital, Guardianship and Treatment) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2008.

The Department of Health's official pink forms, together with the CQC's Word-format treatment forms (T1-6), are published below with permission from the respective organisations.

SLAM guidelines for disclosure, 22/10/10 - This Trust's policy is now (a) to provide copies of section papers on request as soon as reasonably practicable; (b) in connection with hearings, to provide access to records if the RC has not objected within 24 hours; and (c) in other circumstances, to provide access to records under the DPA, urgently if appropriate.

In Wales, forms must comply with the Mental Health (Hospital, Guardianship, Community Treatment and Consent to Treatment) (Wales) Regulations 2008.

The Welsh Assembly Government have produced forms which are available free of charge.
