Attitudes to developments in community psychiatry among general practitioners

  • Stephen Stansfeld (a1)
Extract

As general practitioners (GPs) are clinically responsible for the majority of recognised psychiatric morbidity in the community, they have an important role to play in deciding the shape of new community psychiatric services. This paper reports the results of a self-completion postal questionnaire survey of Harlow GPs' views on how community psychiatric services should be developed. Harlow is a mature new town (population 79,521: 1981 census) north east of London, served by a typical DGH department of psychiatry with in-patient wards and a day hospital, outreach services being provided largely by community psychiatric nurses (CPNs). GPs work in group practices in purpose-built health centres.
