Attitudes of mental health workers to treatment in their own workplaces

  • John Stephens (a1), Mark Prunty (a2) and Wojciech Falkowski (a3)
Abstract

Recent questions have been raised regarding the development of policies by Trusts for the treatment of their locally resident staff outside the hospitals in which they work. A questionnaire was developed to elicit views of mental health care workers on this issue. Overwhelming agreement was found among a wide variety of staff groups on the need for provision of treatment options outside the local service. Considerable thought and planning are needed in the development of formal operational policies to ensure such a service is provided by all hospitals/Trusts.
