Can the nearest relative discharge section 2?

If you are under section 2 or 3, your Nearest Relative can discharge you. But your psychiatrist can prevent this if they think you are 'dangerous' to yourself or others. If you are on section 2 and you want to appeal, you have to apply to the tribunal within 14 days of being sectioned.
