Lay Summary :
With psychiatric bed pressures increasing, patients are experiencing longer waits in A&E and on acute medical wards before they can be transferred to mental health inpatient units; as a result liaison services are having to become more proactive with their approach towards treatment. We intend to assess if starting medication early (within the first 24hours of a patient presenting) has an impact on duration of stay in psychiatric ward.
