SR, Regina (on the Application of) v Mental Health Review Tribunal: Admn 14 Dec 2005

The patient had been detained under section 3. He applied to challenge his detention, but before the hearing, he was accepted on to a programme for supervision following his intended release the day before the hearing. His solicitors notified the tribunal of his change in status, but now appealed their refusal to decide his application.
Held: The hearing had been cancelled properly. The evidence required would be different for what would now be a different hearing. A new application was required in respect of his new status as a patient subject to supervised discharge.
