A consumer satisfaction survey of patients with learning disabilities and mental health needs attending outpatient psychiatry clinics was performed using a questionnaire administered by their carer. Sixty completed questionnaires were returned and the results were analysed to determine whether demographic or service variables were correlated with the degree of satisfaction. Younger patients living independently or with their family and those who were not prescribed psychotropic medication were more satisfied. The service variables associated with increased satisfaction were comfortable waiting areas, punctuality and good communication with the doctors.
