Extract

General adult psychiatric services in Nottingham operate on a sector basis, with clinical teams having responsibility for the psychiatric care of all patients resident in a defined area. Sectors, which are conterminous with two or more social service areas, are not of equal population size, but comprise populations likely to give rise to similar demands for psychiatric services. The Social Services Department responded to the introduction of full sectorisation of hospital services in 1982 by allocating social workers to sector teams where possible, aiding the development of multidisciplinary teams.
