Lord Crisp report on acute psychiatric care for adults in England published

February 09, 2016

The The Commission to review the provision of acute inpatient psychiatric care for adults published its first report on mental health services in England. The report, led by former chief executive of NHS England, Lord Nigel Crisp, said access to acute care for severely ill adult mental health patients was inadequate nationally and, in some cases, potentially dangerous. Very specific recommendations were also made about the role of carers and need for increased involvement with carers in care planning and the delivery of care.
