Supervision registers: Recent government policy and legislation

  • Frank Holloway (a1)
Abstract

With the possible exception of the proposed supervised discharge, the supervision register is the most controversial current government initiative within the mental health field. This paper presents both the guidance issued by the NHS Executive and the concerns that the psychiatric profession has expressed. Time will tell whether the supervision register turns out to be a visionary policy that successfully allays public concerns over community care or an example of a bureaucratic response to an issue of inadequate resources.
