What to do if circumstances become urgent under normal guardianship application?

This situation may occur when, for an example, some treatment is forthcoming shortly or medical conditions are critical or highly unpredictable and the hearing date to be fixed under normal situation will not meet the need. The Board has power to abridge the time for social enquiry report and, as far as possible, urgently fix an early hearing date. This practice is called urgent guardianship hearing.
