Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Good afternoon, thank you for contacting Just Answer my name is***** am a solicitor and I will be assisting you today. Can you clarify your question so that I can best advise you?
Further to the above can you provide some further information so that I can best advise you?
Upon further review and without any further information I believe that this question is more medical than legal and therefore I will opt out of this question.
Hello, this is Jim and welcome to JustAnswer. I will be the lawyer working with you today.Sorry to hear of the issue. I will set out my written answer shortly.
A human rights issue would be a legal matter if your rights have been infringed.
You mention you have been forced - I am unsure if you mean you have been detailed or if the diagnosis was made and you believe this was imposed on yourself.
Under the Mental Health Act 2005 you can be detained against your will if you have a psychological illness and by not detaining you, this would either pose a risk to yourself or others (or both). You can make a complaint to the managers of your NHS or private hospital, and the person who has diagnosed you.
If this does not help, you can then ask your Care Quality Commission (CQC) to investigate the complaint - you need to contact CQC Mental Health Act, Citygate, Gallowgate, Newcastle, NE1 4PA (by post) or by telephone: 03000 616161 (then press 1 to speak to the mental health team). Or you could email them :***@******.***.
You should also contact your local Healthwatch who are patient's consumer champions. Yours can be found here: https://www.healthwatch.co.uk
If want to sue for human rights then you would need a law firm (we are an internet forum) - you can find a local solicitor via this site: https://solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk
I hope this helps and answers the question - my goal is to ensure you are happy with the answer and have the information you need. If you have any follow up questions then please let me know. I will reply as soon as I can to help with any further queries.
Please let me know if the answer helped or if you need me to cover anything else?. I am happy to clarify the answer or if you have any follow up questions. If so, I’d be grateful if you would let me know. I am free most days, including weekends, so feel free to ask me anything you are unsure of.
