We need to establish services for patients with personality disorder.

A.K Al-Sheikhli, Loc.Consultant Psychiatrist
27 November 2003

It was interesting to read the editorial, personality disorder:no longer a diagnosis of exclusion by Snowden & Kane (Psychiatr Bull 2003,,27(11):401). The authors refer to a survey in 2002 which showed that only 17% of those Trusts who replied had provided a specialized service for patients with personality disorder. Those who suffer from personality disorders are not only unwelcomed by psychiatrists, but also by social workers and nursing staff.There have been many welcome developments in psychiatric services during thelast 20 years,eg mother & baby units, assertive outreach, early intervention & crisis team services, so I think esablishing services for personality disordered patients is urgently needed. These services could provide better services for patients,improve our understanding of personality disorder, and hopefully will change the opinon of medical ,nursingstaff,and also the public opinon about patients who suffer from personality disorder.Thanking you,Yours sincerely,AK.Al-Sheikhli ...
