Another Style of Psychogeriatric Service

  • A. A. Baker (a1) and R. J. F. Byrne (a1)

Summary

This paper describes a psychogeriatric service in Gloucestershire. Agreement on policies was reached with general practitioners, Social Services, other psychiatrists and hospital nursing staff. The day hospital is regarded as the preferred area of treatment for a wide variety of patients, including the severely demented. In this service less than five per cent of admissions appear to become long-stay. With emphasis on day hospital and community support the number of beds for this type of patient recommended by DHSS may be excessive.
