The Mental Health (Discrimination) Act 2013 is an act to make further provision about discrimination against people on the grounds of their mental health. The provisions cover Members of Parliament, jurors and company directors. They repeal legislation disqualifying a Member of Parliament or of the devolved bodies on grounds of mental illness, remove the general ban on people receiving treatment for their mental health undertaking jury service, and amend regulations which allow a director of a public or private company to be removed from their position by reason of their mental health. Explanatory notes produced to assist in the understanding of the Act are available separately.

Place of publication:

The main elements of the bill are firstly: to establish a new, integrated health and adult social care regulator Ofcare, from existing regulators; to define the functions of the new regulator in the areas of safety and quality assurance, information and performance assessment and safeguarding the rights of detained mental health patients; and to update the system of registration that applies to providers of health and adult social care services and extend this to include NHS providers. Further details will be set out shortly in  response to the consultation on 'The future regulation of health and adult social care in England.' Second, to introduce legislation to use the civil, rather than criminal, standard of proof for all healthcare professional regulatory bodies; to create an independent adjudicator to undertake independent and objective formal adjudication for the professional regulatory bodies; and to ensure that all healthcare organisations employing or contracting with doctors appoint a 'responsible officer' with personal responsibility to work with the GMC to identify and handle cases of poor professional performance by doctors.
