Extract

The Audit Commission has drawn attention to local champions of change in mental health services. Good Practices in Mental Health (GPMH) (1985) has highlighted a district which has overcome some of the myths about the impossibility of transforming the service, and recently the Institute of Health Services Management (IHSM) Working Group (1991) has entered the debate with “good psychiatric services can be developed in areas where managers are determined to introduce improved services”.
