Out-patient clinics are widely used to asssess and treat patients. In psychiatric practice, out-patient clinics are used both to assess new referrals and follow up existing patients. More than three-quarters of psychiatric out-patient attendances are for follow-up (DHSS, 1984). With modern emphasis on community psychiatry, the role of out-patient clinics may become less prominent and more refined. Very little appears to have been published on the subject of psychiatric follow-up clinics.
