The Henderson Hospital – a trainee's experience

  • Neil Joughin (a1)
Extract

In this issue of the Psychiatric Bulletin (pp 72–76), Dolan & Norton discuss the need to protect specialist psychiatric units such as the Henderson Hospital. They describe a variety of functions of these units, but only make brief reference to training. I would like to describe my six months in psychiatry spent as a registrar at the Henderson Hospital. My enjoyment of the placement may not be synonymous with the Henderson serving an important training function, but I hope that I can explain why the two may be linked.
