Recent trends in the provision of inpatient psychiatric care in the UK are considered in comparison with those in Europe and North America. There follows a review of public sector care under the NHS and a debate about the effectiveness of inpatient care and whether it should be a separate psychiatric subspeciality. Finally local service developments are discussed as a type of case study to illustrate how services are currently undergoing rapid changes.
