Are you studying law or politics?

The human rights act was introduced much later in the English Legal System than the Convention of Human Rights. So until this date, the UK had not that detailed kind of human rights included in one of their Acts of Parliament.
All the legal authorities in the UK, including courts have to follow the guidelines of this Act, not breaching any of their Articles.
In court cases involving human rights, the court has to follow the decisions of the European Court of Human Rights instead of UK based courts. Sometimes an Act of Parliament is not compatible with the Human Rights Act or the Convention (that includes the same articles as the Human Rights Act), so courts will follow the Act of Parliament, pointing out that it is not compatible with the Convention/Human Rights Act. Then changes can be made within the Act, to make it compatible with the Human Rights Act.
In any case, that a citizen may feel that his Human Rights have been affected, the case can be brought to court, appeals are possible and the last stage would be the European Court of Human Rights. This concerns all cases, where some of the articles stated in the Human Rights Act have been affected (for ex. Arrest without allowing to see a lawyer or to see a magistrate in the appropriate time or where the judge did not allow someone to ask the witnesses questions).

This was more the law point on the Human Rights Act. I think that may not be answer your questions, but maybe you get some new information that helps you.
