The new database structure introduced in 2019 is more useful than this Category page: see Special:Drilldown/Cases.The pages below are initially ordered according to the dates on which they were added to the site (most recent first). The order can be changed by clicking on the symbol beside a column heading: click on the symbol beside "Page and summary" for alphabetical order; click beside "Categories" for the order in which the cases were reported. Click on the arrow symbol again to reverse the order. Click on a page name to view the relevant page. Asterisks mark those cases which have been added to the new database structure.

After-careSection 117 places a joint duty on the relevant CCG (or LHB in Wales) and LSSA to provide (or arrange for the provision of), in co-operation with relevant voluntary agencies, after-care services for certain classes of detained patient.

It applies to patients who were detained under s3, s37, s37/41, s45A, s47, s47/49, s48/49. It begins when they cease to be detained and (whether or not immediately after so ceasing) leave hospital. The duty continues until the CCG and LSSA are satisfied that such services are no longer required. This decision cannot be made during the continuance of a CTO.

The relevant bodies are usually those for the area in which the patient was ordinarily resident immediately before being detained or (if the patient was not ordinarily resident anywhere in England or Wales) for the area in which the person concerned is resident or to which he is sent on discharge by the hospital in which he was detained.

No charge can be made for after-care provided under s117 (and if charges have been made then they can be claimed back).
