Mental Health Bill [Lords]
Rosie Winterton (Minister of State (Health Services), Department of Health; Doncaster Central, Labour)
Yes, I believe that that is the case. However, there are some elements of the amendment that we do not want to include; in particular, the idea that a SOAD should always be involved in certificating ECT for child patients except in emergencies. As I have said before, there is also the question of whether to include further safeguards with formal child patients.
