Supervised discharge under s25A (aftercare under supervision), is abolished - except for those patients already subject to it, for whom there are transitional arrangements.

A Community Treatment Order under s17A must be considered when s17 leave of more than 7 days is being considered. The patient is subject to conditions and can be recalled for up to 72 hours; SCT can then be revoked if this is justified.

The duty to provide aftercare under s117 continues to apply for the duration of the CTO.
