  • The findings outlined in this book describe a service in inner London that cannot be sustained because it is unable to meet the demands imposed upon it. Services in outer London are comparable with those in other English cities. The mental illness services are in a state of transition, and admirable features in many parts of the capital are described. However, no single service appears to have a full range of desirable features. The crisis in inner London is not due to meanness among London's purchasers or to stick-in-the-mud attitudes among its providers. The formulae for allocating resources to deprived inner-city areas need to be revisited. London is shown to have greater needs even than the socially deprived areas of other cities, and the report explores some of the reasons why this is so. The revised edition contains a comprehensive index.
  • Pagination: x, 413p.; The research reported in this book will be the basis of the London Commission recommendations on mental health service provision in London.
