Table 4: Young people admitted to adult wards between

1 April 2007 - 30 September 2009

When inpatient CAMHS, or an alternative is not available, adolescents who

require hospital admission have been admitted onto an adult ward. Table 1

provides an overview of the young people in the Western Trust who have

been admitted to an adult ward within an 30 month period.

The Western Trust received one complaint during 2009. This was made in

relation to staff attitude. The consultation from VOYPIC indicated that a

significant amount of children were not aware of the complaints procedure.

Parents had more information in relation to this.
