This article aims to apply the process of clinical governance to the management of patients with a major mental illness, living in the community, with a history of self harm and/or harm to others; and to design an early warning system to drive rapid intervention if patients miss a clinic appointment. This follows the recommendations of good clinical practice for this vulnerable group.
