The main objective of this study was to establish whether referral patterns varied across time in either the number of referrals made or the type of disorder referred to an Adult Mental Health Clinical Psychology Department. Design The design was a review of a database of patient contact record forms completed by Clinical Psychologists over 5 years. Setting Department of Clinical Psychology in West of Scotland - Urban setting. Subjects The subjects were patients who were referred to, and who attended, the Adult Mental Health Service used in this study. Results The data analysis was descriptive. No consistent pattern was found in the total number of referrals made to the department over the five-year period studied. Similarly, there was no discernable pattern of temporal distribution in the total number of referrals for each of the disorder categories considered. Conclusion Over the five-year period in the location studied, there was no consistent pattern of temporal distribution, in either the total numbers of referrals made, or in the types of disorders referred.
