Instead of remanding an accused person1 or a person in respect of whom a special verdict has been returned or a finding of disability has been made2 in custody, the Crown Court may remand such person to a hospital specified by the court if satisfied, on the written or oral evidence of two registered medical practitioners3, that:
(1) he is suffering from mental disorder4 of a nature or degree which makes it appropriate for him to be detained in a hospital for medical treatment5; and
(2) appropriate medical treatment is available for him6.
However, the court may not so remand
