The natural grouping of training rotations in psychiatry into those based on a central University Teaching Hospital and those in a peripheral location invites comparison between the two groups. Training perspectives in two neighbouring schemes, one in each category, have been explored recently (McWilliam & Morris, 1988). It was noticed that, although styles differ, resulting clinical competence is comparable. An important part of clinical training is out-of-hours experience. For approval of a rotational scheme, experience of on-call duties and emergencies is necessary (Royal College of Psychiatrists, 1987). We were interested in comparing on-call duties in two different types of scheme, one in Sheffield, the other in Chichester.
