Out of area placements in mental health services for adults in acute inpatient care

The government has set a national ambition to eliminate inappropriate out of area placements in mental health services for adults in acute inpatient care by 2020/21.

A definition of out of area placements has been developed following significant stakeholder engagement to enable progress against the ambition to be monitored. It is aimed at providers, commissioners and users of local adult inpatient acute mental health services in England.
