The market for a community rehabilitation service

  • M.T. Spurrell (a1) and C.S. Thomas (a1)
Abstract

Fifty-two mental health workers in South Manchester were asked to complete a survey to try to identify patients with chronic mental health problems who would benefit from home-based rehabilitation. These patients were known to the services but were unwilling to attend activities in the day hospital or day centre or come into hospital for in-patient rehabilitation. Seventy per cent of the mental health workers who comprised psychiatrists, social workers and community psychiatric nurses completed the survey. Overall 68 patients were identified. Negative symptoms or defect state were the most frequently reported problems with difficulties with engaging or poor compliance being the next most frequently reported problem. There were some differences in the ranking of the order of problems by different professional groups.
