Section 12

5 posts in this topic

Does anybody know how to apply for approval after attending the section 12 induction course? They said that we need to contact the local authorities and for those in Yorkshire the local authority is based in Doncaster. Whom should we contact in Doncaster though?

Best way :

Ask your Consultant - he / she will know who is the appropriate authority

Or else - ask any Approved Social Worker of your team - they sure would know

There should be a standard form - ur CV may be asked. the form is pretty simple usually

You would need 2 referees at least one COnsuultant and both should be sec 12 approved.

Hi Sands,

Your Doncaster contact is -

Sharon Fraser

Project Officer Section 12 (2) Approvals

Doncaster and South Humber NHS Trust

Department of Psychiatry

Doncaster Royal Infirmary

Armthorpe Road

Doncaster

DN2 5LT

TEL: 01302 327355

FAX:  01302 327355    

Email:  sharon.fraser@dsh.nhs.uk

You need to get them to mail you a form. Fill it, send it along with a copy of your CV, two refrees and a copy of your section 12 course attendance certificate. Though the approval will be backdated to your course attendance they advise you not to do any MHA assessments till you get the certificate.

cheers
