Abstract

Following the Report on the Health Improvement Programme 1998-2003, services for drugs and alcohol have been identified as a priority area for multidisciplinary review in the NHS in Greater Glasgow. This has been followed by a report on the Mental Health and Illness in Greater Glasgow. The aim of the present review is to examine a clinical psychology service for alcohol and drug problems based in North Glasgow in order to establish a clear picture of its practice and patient population. The review will focus particularly on comparisons between male and female referrals and between referrals for drug and alcohol problems. Results on age, locality of referral, referral source, reason for referral, and attendiance at first appointment are examined and compared with the report on the Mental Health and Illness in Greater Glasgow. The importance of local service audit is highlighted as particular results contrast those found in the Glasgow-wide report. The implications and the limitations of the study are noted.
