Research carried out in Glasgow recently has provided a unique database of the head injury population. Traditional studies of this population have been somewhat limited by the strict inclusion criteria they have applied. However, the Hospitalised Head Injury Study included all people who received a head injury in Glasgow over a 12-month period, and attempted to gain information from a sample population about the consequences of the injury after discharge from hospital. This paper reports the characteristics of the sample, and their use of psychology, psychiatry and GP services post injury. The sample consisted of mainly young, single males who had acquired their injury through either an assault or fall. A large proportion reported a detrimental change in many of their symptoms and relationships 12 months post-injury, but a surprisingly small proportion had accessed the services being examined. Possible reasons for this discrepancy are discussed.
