Hari has a history of being physically abused as a child. His father went to prison because of it and they do not have any contact.
Hari is under section and will be going home in a few days' time. He lives in a flat, which he shares with his friends.
He is told that his father, as his nearest relative, should normally be informed when Hari is going to be discharged from hospital because it is the duty of the hospital managers to do this.
Hari says that he absolutely does not want his father to be told this or any other information about him. The hospital should respect his wishes.
