AMHP Duty Team

This service aims to help anyone whose difficulties are such that they require an assessment or treatment in hospital for a period of time.

This could be either as an informal patient or, where necessary, under a section of the 1983 Mental Health Act.

Placing someone under a Section requires three professionals to take a joint decision, an Approved Mental Health Professional (AMHP) and two registered doctors.
