Scottish mental health law review: our response

A response to the independent review of mental health, capacity and adult support and protection legislation, chaired by Lord John Scott KC.

What are the next steps?

Work will continue at pace to establish this approach and to work in partnership to support successful implementation. Initial work will develop the delivery plans and ‘route-maps’ to reform for our early priorities and will support implementation of the approach.

Work will also commence to further consider proposals that are more complex in nature to develop suitable policy options for reform that can be progressed by this programme.

Our intention is to further refine and develop the programme aims, objectives and outcomes with partners and to develop a theory of change for mental health and capacity reform. We will also agree our governance approach. This will need to provide strategic oversight and leadership.
