Almost 97% of 'out-of-area' mental health patients are inappropriate

Comment

is that they were sent inappropriately outside of the area but needed a bed or that they didn't need to be admitted and also sent out of area. I thought all the pysch beds were being closed and care in the community was taking its place, so why are they not being cared for in the community? I was told this was the gold standard which was why a 1/4 of our local pysch beds were cut. strange times.
