The Governor’s Proposed Budget for the fiscal year 2017-2018 contains language to have the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation and the California Correctional Health Care System assume responsibility for psychiatric programs now run under the auspices of the Department of State Hospitals (DSH-Salinas Valley, DSH-Stockton, and DSH-Vacaville). The potential transfer is being called “lift and shift” for short.
UAPD is watching the situation closely and will meet and confer with the State over the issue. In preparation, we ask doctors to use the following survey
to share your thoughts and concerns with us.
