If you are under a Treatment Authority or a Forensic Order under the Mental Health Act 2016, this can seriously curtail your liberty and personal freedom.

The Mental Health Review Tribunal is an independent body which hears from the psychiatrists, the patient and others before it decides for itself whether such an order should remain in place, and if so if it should be varied.

In our experience, obtaining a second opinion from another psychiatrist and/or making strong submissions to the tribunal can often result in the order made against you being revoked or made less restrictive.
