Temporary changes to some hearing processes have been extended.

The Omicron wave of COVID-19 continues to affect Health Services' capacity to prepare for and support patients to participate in Tribunal Hearings.

In response, the Mental Health Tribunal has developed a strategy to temporarily change some hearing processes to continue to deliver Tribunal hearings. The temporary changes implemented in January and February have been extended to 31 October 2022.

This COVID-19 Strategy is available below.
