Psychiatric services in Zimbabwe are, by African standards, relatively sophisticated and are modelled on the British system. A new patient is assessed using the Maudsley history-taking format modified to suit local situations, and a mental state examination. A physical examination and routine investigations follow. X-ray facilities and basic laboratory work-up such as haematology and microscopy are available at Provincial level. EEG, ultrasonography, echoencephalography, CT scanning and serum anticonvulsant levels are available in Harare and Bulawayo.
