It examines patient outcomes, service provision and effectiveness, economics of provision and impact on staff and community. Based on a unique 11-year study of the move to community care in the London area conducted by the Team for the Assessment of Psychiatric Services (TAPS), it offers international comparisons with similar experiences of deinstitutionalization in the US and Italy. It will be important reading for all those concerned with the future development of care in the community.
