Treatment of a person who is entitled to the same treatment under the SRCA and/or the VEA and the MRCA, is covered under section 15 of the CTPA.

Essentially, where a person has dual entitlement to treatment under either the SRCA or the VEA and the MRCA, then treatment should generally be provided under the MRCA.  However there are some exceptions, for example when section 85(7A) of the VEA applies, as discussed above.  These exceptions are discussed in the detailed commentary on the application of the transitional treatment provisions in Chapter 12 of this Manual (paragraphs 12.8.2, 12.8.3, 12.8.4 and 12.8.5).
