  • Stephen Wilson (a1) and Katherine Wilson (a2)

Summary

Experiences arising from the work of a multi-disciplinary psychotherapy liaison team in the primary care setting are described. Special emphasis is given to the difficulties encountered in working relationships. Attention is drawn to the complexity of the inter-professional relationship, its unconscious roots, and its influence on the quality of patient care.
