Editorial Reviews


Praise for the first edition: 'An excellent, comprehensive and thoughtful guide to the rights, powers, and duties of nearest relatives under the Mental Health Act. This is the definitive work on the subject.' -- Phil Fennell, Professor of Law, Cardiff Law School This intelligent and comprehensive analysis is a welcome addition to the currently scant literature in this area. -- Journal of Mental Health Law There can hardly be a professional concerned with MeHA 1983 and its practical application in daily practice who will not benefit from having this book to hand... -- New Law Journal Hewitt looks first at the development of the role of nearest relative, where it is now, the problems it presents and how these are likely to be resolved...The rules are comprehensively worked through and the examples clear. -- Tony Eaton, Solicitor, Brent Community Law Centre
