As the result of a large waiting list (N=460), a Psychology Department in the West of Scotland proposed a waiting list initiative in the form of screening assessment clinics scheduled to take place during the first two weeks in February 1999. Analysis of the referrals being made to the department was proposed. This information would be used to inform service development in order to promote a more referral-based service. At the time of assessment the length of time patients had been waiting for an appointment ranged from two weeks to nine months. The majority of referrals were received from GPs (74%). Anxiety (40%) and depressive (26%) symptomatology were the most common reasons for referral. Sixty seven percent of referrals experienced more than one clinically significant presenting problem. Taseness' on the Brief mptoms Inventory (BSI) was associated with the level of intervention required (chi-square=18.1, df=3, p < 0.05). Results indicate that the screening assessments have been a successful exercise in reducing the waiting list (currently N=194).
