Section 41

  

How long does it last?

Unlimited if necessary

What is the reason?

Same as Section 37 and it can only be made if a Section 37 has been made. Section 41 can only be made by a Crown Court. The court will consider, when making a Section 41, the nature of the offence, the reasons behind the offence, the future risk of further offences being committed and protection of the public from serious harm.

Medical say so.

Same as Section 3 except one of the Doctor's must give spoken evidence in court.

Discharge procedure:

Only by the Home Secretary or a tribunal.
