The new Mental Health
(Care & Treatment)(Scotland) Act 2003 brings significant changes to
how people will experience mental health services and places new and extended duties
on local authority and NHS services.
For the local authority, this extends to all departments of the Council and requires
close cooperation with the
NHS in Ayrshire and Arran.
There are staff within each authority; South Ayrshire, East Ayrshire, North Ayrshire
and NHS Ayrshire and Arran, tasked with ensuring effective implementation.
