First light: old age psychiatry in Wolverhampton 1995–1996

  • David Jolley (a1), Rosie Jenkins (a2) and Simon Dixey (a2)
Extract

In a survey of services conducted by the Section of Old Age Psychiatry in 1993, Wolverhampton was identified as one of 24 Districts with no consultant Old Age Psychiatrist in post (Benbow & Jolley, 1996). This encouraged the newly formed NHS Trust responsible for mental health and other community services to arrange for the secondment of D. J. from South Manchester, for a period of two years, with a view to setting up and running an appropriate service for older people with mental illnesses (Jolley, 1996). We are reporting here some of the changes which have occurred during the first year of this secondment.
