Intensive psychiatric care units

In June 2010 we completed a focused programme of work to look at the provision of intensive psychiatric care units (IPCUs) across Scotland.

As well as asking service providers about what is available across the country, we also worked with partner organisations in order to speak with a significant number of people with lived experience of IPCUs and asked them about what works well and what could be improved.

Our overview report details what we did and what we found. It also contains both local and national priority improvement areas.

All of the reports from this innovative project can be found here:
