You will require this approval if you intend to administer electro convulsive therapy (ECT) at a place other than a mental health facility or other health facility approved by the Agency.
ECT may only be performed by a medical practitioner. Two medical practitioners must be present when the ECT is performed, one of whom must be experienced in the performance of ECT and the other an experienced anaesthetist. Further restrictions apply to the circumstances where ECT can be performed.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
