Emergency and liaison psychiatry

  • Alison Gourdie (a1) and Vivienne Schnieden (a1)
Extract

The post of Emergency and Liaison Registrar in the Bloomsbury Rotation was created in 1988 to provide a psychiatric service at University College Hospital, London, in the Accident and Emergency (A&E) Department and to the A&E Ward for assessment of deliberate self harm (DSH) cases. It incorporated existing commitments of liaison to the UCH wards and provision of urgent psychiatric assessments. The service had previously been shared among a number of psychiatric staff. The registrar can thus be seen as a ‘central pivot’ within the District Psychiatric Services.
