Back to the asylum

Abstract

As hospitals close and relocate, our patients are increasingly being moved between different sites and out into the community. A move back to a large institution, however, is rare. This article describes the move of an in-patient facility located in a general hospital to an old psychiatric hospital with which, historically, it did not have very strong links.
