Clinical attachments in psychiatry

  • Rory O'Shea (a1) and Srikanth Nimmagadda (a2)
Extract

This article discusses the history of clinical attachments in psychiatry and recent changes in this area, including work permit regulations, which can make it increasingly difficult to obtain an attachment. The advantages and disadvantages of clinical attachments are considered for both the clinical attache and the UK health service. Good practice points for clinical attaches and their supervisors are presented. The future of the scheme is discussed and potential solutions to difficulties are suggested.
