Reducing Mental Health Act administration leaves AMHPs and doctors more time to do what they do best – supporting a person in crisis.

The paper-based method used by Approved Mental Health Professionals (AMHPs) to arrange Mental Health Act assessments has been identified as a leading cause of delay to Mental Health Act assessments. Service users and their families may potentially be left distressed and at risk for hours while AMHPs work their way through paper lists, trying to find available s.12 doctors. Furthermore, current practise increases the possibility of unlawful detention and litigation as doctors without active s.12 approval may be invited to assessments.

S12 Solutions is an app and website which connects AMHPs with available, local s.12 doctors.

I’ve been using the service now for well over two months and have made new contacts with various doctors in my local area. I can honestly say S12 is by far, the best AMHP app available in England.
