The purpose of this review was to consider the influence of statutory mental health provision upon the use of high, medium and low secure psychiatric services. The brief for this review posed the ultimate question: ?which, if any available statutory mental health services correlate with a lower use of secure services in region?? The overall profile of the secure services used in the region shows a decline in high secure services and a growth in low secure. However, it has only been in high secure services where the rate of discharge exceeds the rate of admission. Therefore assuming that there is little or no intention to increase capacity in low and medium secure services an increased rate of discharge would be required. A particular area to consider is the numbers accessing low secure services from local services and the functioning of intensive care and step down services enabling discharge from low secure services. In financial terms one PCT is a low outlier for it is spend on secure and high dependency services and this same PCT is a high outlier in its spend on PD services. On considering relationships between wider mental health provision and secure service use it was found that PCTs in the region that spend more on Assertive Outreach used less low secure occupied bed days and spent less overall on secure and high dependency services.
