Section 208: responsible medical officer’s duty to keep directions under review
371.Section 208 provides that the responsible medical officer is under a continuing duty to keep a hospital direction or a transfer for treatment direction to which the patient is subject under review. Where the responsible medical officer considers that the direction should be revoked, the officer must submit a report to the Scottish Ministers containing a recommendation to that effect. This section closely mirrors section 207.
