With money in mind: the benefits of liaison psychiatry – NHS Confederation –  November 2011

“This briefing outlines the benefits that the Birmingham RAID liaison psychiatry service has brought in terms of cost savings and improved health and well-being for patients. It will be of particular interest to all those who commission and provide acute hospital and mental health services.

Improving the quality of treatment and care in health services is a difficult and continuous challenge in itself, but with co-morbidities and complexity increasing at a time of economic austerity, it can appear daunting.

Liaison psychiatry services are increasingly seen as an essential component of effective care in acute hospitals. their clinical effectiveness has been well documented, but little has been known up to now about their potential economic impact.”
