Extract

Adolescent psychiatric services differ considerably in terms of the patient groups they seek to address and in their modes of treatment (Health Advisory Service, 1986). The Prestwich Adolescent Unit is a general purpose, seven day, regional service for adolescent psychiatry, based in Salford Health Authority. Serving a population of 4½ million, it offers a mix of in-patient, day-patient, out-patient and consultation/liaison work, specialising in the treatment of mental illness.
