Information-based management of mental health services: a two-stage model for improving funding mechanisms and clinical governance

  • Martin Elphick (a1) and Martin Elphick (a1)
Extract

However, at present these tasks are seriously hampered by a lack of good-quality information about what is happening within services. Internal trust management is also poorly informed.
