We have extended unannounced district general hospital ‘spot check’ visits to older persons mental health wards.

22 wards of 51 units in Wales were visited in late November and December of 2014.

Reports are now available providing details on their findings from each ward visited. An All Wales report has also been compiled bringing together results and good practice from all the visits.

To support this agenda the Minister  recently announced over £5 m a year of new money to provide psychiatric liaison services at district general hospitals, and to ensure that daily activities are available on all older person’s mental health wards.
