Accumulating long-stay in-patients in Salford: monitoring further progress

  • T. Fryers (a1)


Data derived from a psychiatric case-register are presented on the accumulation of new long-stay cases in Salford from 1967 to 1976. The analysis supports the general decline reported in an earlier shorter-term study except for the over 65s, where the trend was reversed. The implications of the findings are discussed.
