A local child psychiatric service as viewed by district social workers

  • S. J. Dover (a1)
Abstract

The study examines the knowledge and views among district social workers of a local child psychiatric service and determines whether their views influence decisions to refer to the service. The results are compared with similar studies of general practitioners (GPs) and paediatricians and discussed with reference to recent national reviews of child psychiatry in the UK.
