Gurpreet Daheley

Gurpreet joined THB in December 2020 having trained and qualified at a large national legal aid firm

Gurpreet qualified as a mental health solicitor in 2013 but has worked in the mental health field representing vulnerable detained patients since 2009. Gurpreet has been an accredited member of the Law Society’s mental health panel scheme since 2013. This means that she has been deemed by the Law Society to have the requisite skills, knowledge and experience to represent patients detained under the Mental Health Act.

Gurpreet is passionate about ensuring that vulnerable patients have their rights upheld and in supporting them to ensure their voices are heard. She regularly assists a broad spectrum of patients ranging from adolescents to the elderly and is often appointed to act in the best interests of those who have been deemed to lack capacity to instruct a solicitor themselves.

Representation of detained patients is funded by Legal Aid and Gurpreet has significant experience assisting those detained under civil and forensic sections along with those subject to Community Treatment orders. Gurpreet regularly assists patients to challenge their detention in hospital at both First-Tier Mental Health Tribunal and Hospital Managers Hearings. She further supports patients at CPA meetings and in liaising with their treating team to ensure they receive appropriate treatment and care.
