dc.description.abstract After lengthy delays and protracted debates, the Mental Health Act 2001 was finally enacted and commencement of its substantive sections appears to be imminent. One crucial cornerstone of the new regime introduced by the Act will be automatic periodic reviews of patients' detentions by Mental Health Tribunals. This article will focus on the background to the new tribunal system, the statutory rules for its operation, and case law of relevance from Strasbourg and England. en
