Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The 'nearest relative' is a designated relationship defined in the legislation of England and Wales through the Mental Health Act 1983, as amended by the Mental Health Act 2007. It is the duty of the Approved Mental Health Professional to determine who is the 'nearest relative' of the patient and consult them in the process of assessment under Section 2 (assessment), Section 3 (treatment) or Section 7 (guardianship) of the Act .Who is the 'nearest relative' cannot be loosely determined, like 'next of kin', but is defined, in Section 26 of the Act, according to a specific hierarchy of kinship relations with the patient or in the context of the type and length of joint residency, as well as caring relationships.show more
