    To be section 12 approved doctor
    you need either MRCPsych membership ( meaning passed all exams)
    4 years experience in Psychiatry ( I think full time)

    Again how GPs involve in the assessments - prior contact with person as I understand both doctors need not be section 12 approved.

    MHA - "disorder of mind"
    MCA - " disorder of mind and brain"
    DOLs - ( Deprivation of Liberty ) can be applied only in hospitals and care homes to people who lacks capacity

    I need to find out more about next of kin and nearest relative

    After speaking to an AMHP ( Approved Mental Health Practitioner"), I understand the hierarchy of next of kin or nearest relative

    More to come...

    I got s12 approval being a locum, not easy but not hard as I thought
    Things I needed to submit[ mainly for doctors without casc]
    -4 years of psy. experiences [ as no casc ] - there 3.5 years of ARCP report but please make sure that the actual attachment stating the two placements done for each year is along with the ARCP outcome letters sent to us by the Deanery.
    -When out of training please make sure that you stay with the consultant for more than 3 months as a reference is required and the other reference can be any other professional [ in application]
    - Two supervised assessments.
    - Since no eportfolio, join to CPD programme with the RCPsych- I believe its a must [Please noted CPD programme is different from CPD online, I understood the hard way]

    I think with all the above, you are paid £172 per MHAA [Please don't forget to pay your taxes to HMRC] :mad:
