AnnotationThe community psychiatric service in Chichester is described and evaluated, focusing on how the introduction of community care has affected the choice of patients for referral to the psychiatrist of admission to the hospital; how clinical outcome relates to home or hospital care; and the effects on the community itself. In particular, the extent to which families are affected and households burdened by the Chichester policy, is examined. (AKM).
