(b)the making of referrals described in section 28(1) following such assessments.

(2)If arrangements have been agreed, the partners must ensure that the arrangements are recorded in writing.

(3)The arrangements must identify the extent to which each of the partners is to carry out those assessments and make those referrals.

(4)The arrangements may provide that–

(a)one of the partners is to provide all the assessments and make all the referrals;

(b)different aspects of an assessment, and different referrals following an assessment, will be undertaken by different partners.

(5)The partners may alter their arrangements (including arrangements determined by the Welsh Ministers under section 21 and arrangements which have already been altered) if they agree the alterations.

(b)the arrangements for their area determined by the Welsh Ministers under section 21.

(2)If arrangements have been altered under section 19(5) or 21(2), assessments must be carried out and referrals made in accordance with the altered arrangements.

21Failure to agree arrangementsW

(1)If the partners cannot agree arrangements under section 19–

(b)the Local Health Board must inform the Welsh Ministers that agreement cannot be reached;

(c)the Welsh Ministers may determine arrangements and, if they do, must record them in writing.

(2)If one partner wishes to alter the arrangements, but the other does not, the arrangements may, upon a request being made to the Welsh Ministers by either partner, be altered by the Welsh Ministers to such extent as the Welsh Ministers think fit.

(3)If the Welsh Ministers alter arrangements under subsection (2), they must record the alterations in writing.

Assessment entitlementsW

22Entitlement to assessmentW

(a)the adult requests either of the local mental health partners for the local authority area in which the adult is usually resident to carry out such an assessment;

(b)the adult has been discharged from secondary mental health services (whether or not the services were the responsibility of the local mental health partner to whom the request for an assessment is made);

(c)the request is made within the relevant discharge period (see section 23); and

(d)the local mental health partner to whom the request is made does not consider the request to be frivolous or vexatious.

25Purpose of assessmentW

An assessment under this Part is an analysis of an adult's mental health which identifies–

(a)the secondary mental health services (if any) which might improve or prevent a deterioration in the mental health of the person being assessed;

(b)the community care services, not being secondary mental health services, (if any) which might improve or prevent a deterioration in the mental health of the person being assessed; and

(c)the housing or well-being services (if any) which might improve or prevent a deterioration in the mental health of the person being assessed.

26Assessments: further provisionW

(1)An assessment under this Part must be carried out as soon as is reasonably practicable after the request referred to in section 22(1) is made.

(2)The local mental health partners must ensure that–

(a)an assessment results in a single report in writing which records whether the assessment has identified any services in accordance with section 25; and

(b)a copy of that report is provided to the adult who has been assessed within such period following completion of the assessment as is specified in regulations made by the Welsh Ministers.

(3)Where a sole local mental health partner has carried out an assessment under this Part, the partner must, if it considers it appropriate to do so, provide a copy of the report to the other partner as soon as it is reasonably practicable to do so.

28Referrals relating to housing or well-being servicesW

(1)Unless subsection (2) applies, where a secondary mental health assessment has under section 25(c) identified a housing or well-being service which might help to improve, or prevent a deterioration in, an adult's mental health, the partner must ask the responsible service provider to consider whether to provide the service to the adult or, if that is not appropriate, whether to invite the adult to apply for the service.
