Hospital management of patients who self-harm in England has barely changed in the past 10 years despite the introduction of clinical guidelines a new study shows.
 
Researchers from The University of Manchester found 40% of those attending hospital after an overdose or other self-injury did not get a specialist psychosocial assessment.

The treatment patients received also varied according to where they lived - suggesting a postcode lottery was still in operation.   

The study, funded by the NIHR PGfAR Programme and published in BMJ Open provides the most detailed information on services for self-harm available nationally.
