Notification requirements for expired or revoked Temporary Treatment Orders and Treatment Orders

If a Temporary Treatment Order or Treatment Order expires or is revoked, the authorised psychiatrist must notify the Tribunal (unless the Tribunal revoked the Order) and ensure that reasonable steps are taken as soon as practicable—

        (b)     to inform the following persons in relation to the person who was subject to the expired or revoked Order that the Order has expired or has been revoked—

              (i)     the nominated person;

              (ii)     a guardian;

              (iii)     a carer, if the authorised psychiatrist is satisfied that the expiry or revocation of the Order will directly affect the carer and the care relationship;

              (iv)     a parent, if the person is under the age of 16 years;

              (v)     the Secretary to the Department of Human Services, if the person is the subject of a custody to Secretary order or a guardianship to Secretary order.
