The Psychiatrist on the Parole Board

  • Patrick G. McGrath (a1)
Extract

It is some years since Dr Henry Rollin published, in the Prison Medical Journal, an address he gave to prison doctors on the Role of The Psychiatrist on the Parole Board. Since then, there have been changes in policy and practice, and it may be opportune now to bring the work up to date, and to the notice of a generation of psychiatrists who might some day have the privilege and pleasure of serving on the Board.
