The independent Commission on Acute Adult Psychiatric Care was set up by the Royal College of Psychiatrists in January 2015 in response to widespread concerns about the provision of acute inpatient psychiatric beds in many parts of England and Northern Ireland. It is chaired by Lord Nigel Crisp, former Chief Executive of the NHS in England and former Permanent Secretary of the Department of Health, with support from 14 Commissioners with a diverse range of expertise in mental health and related sectors. More information is available on the Commission’s website: www.caapc.info
This report sets out the findings of the Commission on Acute Adult Psychiatric Care’s work in England. The Commission’s findings for Northern Ireland will be published separately.
