The costs of hospital closure: reproviding services for the residents of Darenth Park Hospital

  • Howard Glennerster (a1)
Extract

There has been little economic evaluation of the costs of closing long-stay institutions. Studies that have been undertaken have rarely had the opportunity to study the before and after effects of complete closure. Most attention has focused on the mentally ill not the mentally handicapped. This study followed a sample of residents leaving Darenth Park Hospital which was closed in 1988.
