You may recall that in the March 2011 Health Legal Update we reported that the Upper-tier Tribunal had decided, for the first time, that a patient could have their First-tier Tribunal (Mental Health) heard in public.

The hearing for Mr Albert Haines, to determine whether he remains liable to be detained under the Mental Health Act 1983, has now been listed to take place on 27 and 28 September 2011 at 10.30am at Field House 15-25 Breams Buildings, London EC4A 1DZ.

The hearing was announced on the Justice website. Members of the public and the press can attend.
