Scottish rehabilitation services: their relationship to socio-economic deprivation

  • Robin G. McCreadie (a1) and Douglas J. Williamson (a1)
Extract

It is well established that there is a strong relationship between psychiatric admission rates and socioeconomic deprivation; the more deprived the area, the more admissions may be expected (Hirsch, 1988). In the development of community resources for the mentally ill, therefore, an aim might be to site the majority of facilities in areas of greatest social deprivation, as that is where the majority of patients will live. It might also be expected that areas of greater deprivation would have more professional NHS staff. The present survey examines the siting of rehabilitation and support services in the catchment areas of Scottish psychiatric hospitals in relation to measures to socioeconomic deprivation. It also examines the relationship between deprivation and numbers of professional NHS staff in the different catchment areas.
