Day hospitals

Many acutely ill patients can be managed in a day hospital as an alternative to admission, and day hospitals can also provide a useful period of follow-up care for those recently discharged but still needing intensive support. They offer medical and nursing care, occupational therapy, psychological treatments, and social work. The day hospital is regarded as an essential part of a fully developed mental health service, but the work it does to some extent overlaps with the currently more fashionable crisis team.
