Implementing a Clinical Psychology Inpatient Service: Expected and Actual Benefits
• Lack of shared understanding about the role of inpatient-based psychology team members, with a particular desire from (non- psychologist) inpatient staff for psychology colleagues to spend more time with inpatients.
• Frustration across psychology colleagues in relation to frequent rescheduling of key meetings (formulation meetings) and poor communication.
• Enhanced potential for inpatient-based psychologists to contribute to, and inform, discussions about recovery and could help promote psychological discussions rather than purely risk-based discus- sions about service-user care.
Psychology roles were spread thinly across multiple acute care services and as a consequence the potential of these roles was under- mined.
