A postal survey was conducted within four regional Health Authorities to ascertain how widely the supervision register had been applied in its first year of operation in adult mental health. A 72% response rate was achieved. The results showed that the register has been absorbed organisationally but is less accepted professionally. One hundred and nineteen of the 367 consultants in the sample (32%) had no entries on the register at 31st March 1995. The provision of training on its use had a significant effect on compliance, although London-based services had marginally less registrations per consultant than their colleagues elsewhere. Very few outside agencies had required access to the register.
