The role of the psychogeriatric day hospital

  • H.P. Rosenvinge (a1)
Abstract

In the currant climate of the implications of the Community Care Act and health service reforms, defining the role and function of the psychogeriatric day hospital is crucial, particularly its distinction from day centre care. This paper describes this role and key issues in day hospital planning. It was presented to the Wessex Specialists in Old Age Psychiatry and accepted by them as a consensus document.
