Lord Burnett voted with the majority (Content).

The mental health bill is largely being used to amend the 1983 Mental Health Act. This is therefore an amendment to a bill to amend that Act.

In some cases in the community the responsible clinician may be a community psychiatric nurse or other professional who is not a psychiatrist.

This amendment would make it mandatory for a doctor - normal either the patient's GP or a psychiatrist to be agree with the decision to place the patient under a Community Treatment Order
