Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust v M (by his Children’s Guardian) and Others: FD 2 Jul 2021

Application for a declaration that it is lawful and in the best interests of M to be deprived of his liberty whilst an inpatient of the Trust, and for his conveyance to and from Trust premises. The application was made as M has the right to liberty and cannot be deprived of his liberty save in accordance with a procedure prescribed by law (per Article 5(1) ECHR), and without coming to court for authorisation of his deprivation of liberty, having regard to the particular facts of this case.
