One of Europe’s leading experts on mental health law is coming to Hull to pass on his extensive knowledge of tribunals.


Anslem Eldergill will visit the Endsleigh Centre on 23rd April for a study day organised by the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside and county social services.


“His visit is a major coup for the university as he really is one of the top experts in Europe in his field,” said Malcolm Golightley, Director of External Relations for the university’s faculty of Social & Life Sciences.


Mr Eldergill will lecture and use case materials to help care professionals in the mental health sector understand the nature of their own roles at tribunals and the relevant law. He is considered to be an authority on detention, tribunal and criminal law provision.


Among his many professional appointments Mr Eldergill is chair of the Legal and Ethics Committee and a Mental Health Act Commissioner. His work and involvement with NHS Trusts and mental health conferences has taken him around Europe. In 1998 Mr Eldergill spoke at the 23rd International Congress on Law and Mental Heath at the Sorbonne, France.


To book a place at the Endsleigh Centre, which is located at 481 Beverley High Road, please contact Melissa at the Faculty of Social and Life Sciences on 01482 440550 ext 4627.
