First published in 1998, this volume assesses issues of privatisation and mental health provision in the Medium Secure Psychiatric Care sector, including case studies on two regional secure units and Stockton Hall Psychiatric Hospital between 1989 and 1992. It emerged at the end of a period of Conservative Party dominance of almost two decades in which privatisation had been at the forefront of discussion and focused on the midpoint of that era. Despite this, privatisation of psychiatric care had received little discussion. Here, Katrina R. Moss discusses the role of private medical care in the UK healthcare landscape with focus on the meaning of privatisation, attitudes towards privatising the criminal justice system along with relevant legal and medical issues related to regulation by the Mental Health Act 1983.
