What is a Mental Health Conditional Discharge?


This is when a person is discharged from hospital but remains liable to be brought back into hospital.
Conditional discharges only apply to patients sectioned under the Mental Health act, charged with a crime and to a restricted patient under a restriction order; or when they are transferred to hospital from prison under Mental Health Act, a restricted patient under a restricted direction.
