Extract

In reply to a question on 12 February, Mr John Patten said that patients leaving mental illness hospitals had the same right as anybody else to choose where they live. The full range of community resources is available. The Department is not responsible for accepting or rejecting individual homes, but the Registered Homes Act 1984 has tightened the conditions for the registration and inspection of such homes by local social service authorities. The DHSS commended a code of practice for residential care, ‘Home Life’, to registration authorities last year; it contains a section specifically about mentally ill people and their rehabilitation.
