Medspeak-UK Mental Health
Part 8 of Schedule A1 to the Mental Capacity Act 2005. The purpose of the Part-8 Review procedure is essentially to assess whether:
1. a person still meets the qualifying requirements for being deprived of his or her liberty, or whether the reasons why he or she does have changed; and
2. any conditions attached to the standard authorisation need to be varied.

The supervisory body must carry out a Part 8 Review if requested by the person being deprived of their liberty or by their “relevant person’s representative”, or by the managing authority of the hospital or care home.
