Liaison psychiatry is the sub-specialty which provides psychiatric treatment to patients attending general hospitals, whether they attend out-patient clinics, accident and emergency departments, or are admitted to in-patient wards - therefore it deals with the interface between physical and psychological health.
Responses and Publications
Recent funding from Government has helped to develop liaison psychiatry services in Wales. Systematic data collection was undertaken to map the liaison psychiatry services in Wales in a collaboration between RCPsych in Wales and Public Health Wales 1000 Lives Improvement. A questionnaire was designed and circulated to all the health boards in Wales to gather information to map liaison psychiatry services in Wales. Up-to-date information was conﬁrmed in January 2018, via email.
