Hospital inpatient care of people with mental health problems in Scotland

Prior to the most recent (May 2016) release, this publication has presented information on mental health (psychiatric) hospital inpatients and day cases derived from information held in Scottish Morbidity Record 04 (SMR04), which is submitted to ISD by NHS Boards in Scotland.

The May 2016 version presents information on patients with mental health problems or learning disability who have been cared for as inpatients or day cases in Scottish hospitals, whether in mental health or general/acute medical settings. It also includes data for patients treated at the State Hospital (Carstairs).

The May 2016 report is structured as follows:

  • Section 1 reports on all patients treated for a primary mental health condition in psychiatric specialities and outwith the main psychiatric specialties. In Scotland, the majority of mental health inpatients are treated in a psychiatric hospital or unit, under the care of a psychiatrist, in a psychiatric specialty, such as General Psychiatry. However, a large number of patients whose principle diagnosis is a mental health condition are treated in general hospitals under the care of different specialties, such as General Medicine.
  • Section 2 reports on patients treated in mental health settings, excluding learning diability comparable with previous reports.
  • Section 3 reports on treated in the learning disability sub-specialty.

Please note that this 2016 report has been renamed 'Hospital inpatient care of people with mental health problems in Scotland' where previously it was 'Mental health hospital inpatient care'. This change is to reflect the greater coverage of data sources included.

Annually, generally published in December.

The December 2015 publication was delayed until 10 May 2016 due to problems with the completeness of the SMR04 dataset.
