Description:
At its January meeting the Programme Committee agreed to review the difficulties being experienced at St. Brendan's Hospital and also to consider the future of St. Brendan's Hospital in the context of the current state of development of the Community Psychiatric Services and projected developments in the immediate future. At the January meeting reference was made to the management difficulties involved in providing services acceptable to the Board and suitable for patients with psychiatric illness in Dickensian buildings which do not provide a therapeutic environment or allow for patients segregation into appropriate treatment categories. The public perception of a District Mental Hospital being the Institute for a myriad of social problems not necessarily related to psychiatric illness leads to a confusion of·roles. The historical difficulty associated with District Mental Hospitals and the Admission procedures laid down in the acts are very significant as far as St. Brendan's is concerned in its interfacing with the various catchment services it being a centre city hospital and also located in the capital city.At its January meeting the Programme Committee agreed to review the difficulties being experienced at St. Brendan's Hospital and also to consider the future of St. Biendan's Hospital in the context of the current state of development of the Community Psychiatric Services and projected developments in the immediate future.
