Community Cares? with Martyn Lewis.
It's been a year since the implementation of reforms to the Care in the Community Act. While all the professionals agree with the idea of caring for mentally ill and elderly people in the community rather than in residential homes and institutions, many have voiced doubts about its practical success. Martyn Lewis looks at the success and failures of the policy with the help of studio guests and, of course, your views.
