London region approval panel Section 12(2) Mental health act 1983


What we do

Statutory responsibility for approving doctors under Section 12(2) of the Mental Heath Act 1983 is exercised  by Central and North West London on behalf of the Secretary of State.  The Approval Panel has psychiatric and GP membership from across London. Every application receives individual consideration in light of the criteria set by the Panel. The London Region deals with Approvals and Reapprovals for Section 12 doctors with professional addresses in London. Contact Regional S12 Administrators for other areas.
