Re Susan Adams (PFD report sent to St George's Hospital, Stafford) [2021] MHLO 2

PFD report The matter of concern was: Susan needed regular psychiatric assistance from secondary mental health services but there were significant difficulties because, living in Staffordshire but 50 feet from the border with Warwickshire, her home address and GP practice were in different counties; she could access the crisis team in Staffordshire but long-term treatment was supposedly to be provided in Warwickshire. The coroner wondered what could be done to facilitate arrangements in these circumstances.
