With a review of inpatient services by the Healthcare Commission coming up, now is the time to be exploring the redesign of inpatient services, staff roles and facilities.

The next in the Health Service Journal Mental Health will explore the complex challenges of providing modern inpatient mental health services. Allowing you to learn how to:

• Develop new roles and new ways of working in inpatient services
• Design new service models that fully integrate inpatient services with the whole system of mental healthcare
• Develop new inpatient units that meet the changing needs of the service and the inpatient population
• Invest in the design and build of more appropriate inpatient mental health units
• Respond to the specific needs of BME inpatient populations
• Understand how to manage the impact of drugs and alcohol on inpatient units
