Here we have tried to analyse the psychiatric referral pattern in general hospital setting. In one year period, 20.20% of the total new cases in psychiatry O.P.D. were referred cases. Majority of the patients were referred at O.P.D. level. Males were more than females. Physicians referred maximum cases than surgeons and gynaecologist. Neurosis was the common diagnosis amongst the referred cases. As one of the senior psychiatrists has mentioned «SQ»lack of referral«SQ»s by the non-psychiatrists has been an unfortunate negative factor for the growth of psychiatry.
