- Draft legislation
This is a draft item of legislation. This draft has since been made as a Scottish Statutory Instrument: The Mental Health (Safety and Security) (Scotland) Amendment Regulations 2012 No. 211
(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These Regulations amend the Mental Health (Safety and Security) (Scotland) Regulations 2005 (“the principal Regulations”) to add the Medium Secure Service, Rohallion Clinic, Muirhall Road, Perth to the list of institutions specified in regulation 2(2)(a) of those Regulations (regulation 2).
The principal Regulations provide for ‘specified persons’, who may be made subject to measures to protect the safety and security of themselves and others. A person is only a “specified person” if certain conditions exist, one of which is that the person is detained in a state hospital or other place specified in regulation 2(2)(a) of the principal Regulations.
The Mental Health (Safety and Security) (Scotland) Amendment Regulations 2007 are revoked.
