Psychiatric referrals from the police : an examination of police officers' action and interaction with psychiatrists
Rogers, Anne Elizabeth (1989) Psychiatric referrals from the police : an examination of police officers' action and interaction with psychiatrists. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
There are two main foci in this research. The first has to do with police officers' management of psychiatric referrals, using their powers under Section 136 of the Mental Health Act, the second with interprofessional relations between the police and psychiatrists. A Section 136 case is defined so as to include all referrals where a mental health disposal is initiated by the police as opposed to a court or other mental health professional.
