"Fife Council Social Work, NHS Fife and Fife Constabulary are working in partnership to keep people safe from harm." According to the adult protection information on the Fife Council website.
I'm wondering how this translates into the psychiatric setting where restraint, seclusion and forced treatment are ways of working with vulnerable people. Where locked wards and seclusion rooms within locked wards mean that vulnerable people/patients are out of sight and out of mind. Where carers, family members and named persons are not allowed to go, except by permission and even then could be by the back door.
What constitutes safety in the psychiatric ward? Does it mean taking the pills and doing what you're told? Being compliant and not questioning the decisions of professionals. Accepting that they know best even if they don't know you.
