Barker v Barking Havering and Brentwood Community Healthcare NHS Trust (Warley Hospital) and Anorther: CA 30 Jul 1998

A person who is liable to be detained in a hospital by virtue of an application or order under that Act may either be actually detained or given leave of absence. While on leave of absence it may well be that the patient’s disorder is not such that he needs to be detained in hospital. But he remains liable to be detained, and may be recalled to hospital, unless and until the application or order authorising his detention lapses or he is discharged.
