ABSTRACT
The article analyzes the outpatient work of seven psychiatrists working in different hospitals in Great Britain. Results showed that most psychotherapy was offered in the hospital where fewest patients were seen per session. The least psychotherapy was offered in the general hospital unit, where the newest patients were interviewed per session. The psychiatrists regarded themselves as largely responsible for the total treatment of their patients, rather than as fulfilling a consultative role. It was suggested that less than half of the patients needed to remain under the direct supervision of the consultant psychiatrist.
