Abstract:Highlights some of the tensions which impede the development of an effective and efficient system of service delivery in forensic psychiatry. Reports on an investigation exploring the quality of care in a relatively small unit providing forensic psychiatric care in a secure setting and the constraints which impede the development of such services. Discusses the findings from the investigation which point to the need for the organizational structure surrounding forensic psychiatric care to be altered so that there are no perverse incentives for purchasers of the services and to enable the contracting process, considering both cost and quality issues, to take place on a level playing field.
