The views of referring general practitioners (GPs) on a psychogeriatric service were obtained through a questionnaire. Most GPs were satisfied with the service. A number of GPs wanted faster responses to referrals, telephone discussions after initial psychogeriatric assessments and more communication with consultants. In response to these findings, secretarial staff was increased and telephone discussions with referring GPs are to follow initial assessments of all urgent and emergency referrals.
