Links to and summaries of all Coronavirus resources on the MHLO database - currently there are 55 - can be found at the following link: Coronavirus resources database.

During the emergency period, which initially runs for 3 weeks from 26/3/20, no person may leave the place where he is living without reasonable excuse. The English and Welsh regulations set out non-exhaustive lists of reasonable excuses, such as obtaining basic necessities, seeking medical assistance, and travelling to work if it is not reasonably possible to work from home. The police and other relevant authorities have been given enforcement powers. Government advice includes to stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people and wash your hands as soon as you get home.

Newer resources

As of 22/3/20, all resouces in the database were categorised and listed under the heading "Resources" in this summary page. If any documents are added to the database after that date they will automatically appear in a list immediately below:

Resources

For lawyers

For those who work with the Mental Health Tribunal

For those working with the Court of Protection

MHT for Scotland

MHRT for Wales

  • Nothing has been published (as of 22/3/20). As in England, the Welsh tribunal rules allow for hearings by video link or telephone, and pre-hearing medical examinations "so far as practicable". Unlike in England, a rule change would be needed to allow for disposal of proceedings without a hearing, and primary legislation would be needed to change panel composition (as Welsh tribunal composition is set out in MHA 1983 sched 2).

Parole Board, family and civil courts, jury trials

Courts and tribunals generally

Coronavirus Bill

For health and social care professionals

Miscellaneous

Legislation

In addition to the resources concerning the Coronavirus Bill above, here is some relevant legislation:
