The experience of psychiatrists managing Chinese patients in Merseyside

  • D. Li (a1)
Extract

The Chinese community in the UK has existed since the latter half of the 1800s and traditionally has been perceived as insular and self sufficient (Lynn, 1982). In the 1960s and ‘70s, there was a large influx of Chinese into the UK to work in catering businesses. Many of the children of this generation were born in this country; with this group now in their early adulthood, there is more integration into the indigenous population. However, there is still an impression that Chinese psychiatric patients are under-represented in the services, but as yet, there has been little psychiatric research carried out among the Chinese in the UK. This study examined briefly the level of contact with, and difficulties encountered in, managing Chinese patients by psychiatrists in Merseyside.
