The Regional Secure Units Programme: A Personal Appraisal: The Present State of Play and Future Plans

  • Peter R. Snowden (a1)
Extract

Since central government allocated capital and revenue money for the regional secure units (RSU) programme, following the 1975 Butler Report, the planning and building programme has been gathering momentum. It was felt it would be useful to review the present complicated and varied picture and to look ahead to the future. This seems a particularly apt moment to look around the regions as the climate of opinion, both within the clinical professions and in the various NHS administrative levels, is changing. Reference will mostly be made to the provisions for Mental Illness rather than for Mental Impairment and Adolescents.
