The Chief Psychiatrist has commenced monitoring of the treatment and care provided to residents of private psychiatric hostels within Western Australia. A new page has been added to the Chief Psychiatrist’s website, where you can view information about the monitoring process.
The first pilot review of a private psychiatric hostel will commence at the end of September 2020.
The Chief Psychiatrist’s Private Psychiatric Hostel Dashboard has also been reviewed and a new process has been implemented. The dashboard will now be published annually as part of the oversight process for private psychiatric hostels. You can view the updated dashboard via the new page.
