Recent government policy and legislation: an overview

  • Sara Davies (a1) and Edward Peck (a2)
Abstract

There has been much recent government legislation affecting mental health services. Some relates to the delivery of general health and social services, of which mental health care forms only a part, and some specifically to the delivery of mental health care. The complex interplay of the legislation is explored and there are suggestions for the further involvement of psychiatrists.
