Pt. 1. Service Based Evaluation. Effective communication within and between services is important in the development of multi-disciplinary collaboration, effective service delivery and satisfactory patient treatment. The primary aim of this study was to audit assessment letter content across three therapy disciplines within Ayrshire and Arran Consulting and Clinical Psychology Services (CCPS). A secondary aim was to audit content within the three therapy disciplines. The overall aim was to ascertain service implications based on the current letter standard. A random sample of sixty letters were audited, twenty written by Clinical Psychologists, twenty by Counselling Psychologists and a further twenty by CBT Psychotherapists. The results suggested overall content inclusion was of a high standard. However, there were some inclusion gaps in specific information pertaining to the themes of case complexity, reason for seeking assistance, previous psychiatric and medical history, maintaining factors and estimated treatment length. It was concluded that training should be conducted across the service to further develop communication within these areas.
