Please note that from 1 August 2020, the Commission will only accept second opinion requests for a Designated Medical Practitioner (DMP) visit under the Mental Health Act (Care and Treatment) (Scotland) Act 2003 and Criminal Procedure (Scotland) Act 1995 via a completed second opinion form (SOP1). Telephone requests for Mental Health Act second opinion requests will not be accepted.
Please note that this is a new version of SOP1 form (v7.1). The old version (v7.0) will no longer be accepted. Please delete any old versions that you might have saved.
A T3B certificate for treatment becomes due two months after any medication for mental disorder is given during the current detention episode (which includes an Emergency Detention Certificate and Short Term Detention Certificate if these apply). We would like to receive the SOP1 form to request for a DMP visit (for first T3B) at least 14 days before the T3B is due. This will give us time to arrange the DMP visit. We can accept the SOP1 up to 21 days before the T3B is due.
For renewal of Compulsory Treatment Order T3Bs, please email the SOP1 form to us as soon as possible (ideally 6-8 weeks before the expiry of the current T3B), so that we have more time to arrange a DMP visit.
If a translator is needed, this will need to be arranged by the Responsible Medical Officer or the treating team, and for them to co-ordinate the visit with the DMP.
Please email the completed SOP1 form to the Commission at: email@example.com
Requests for second opinions under s.48 and s.50 of the Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Act 2000 can still be made via the Commission’s advice line or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
This form has a separate document with instructions on use.
