Background: Shared care, the process whereby professionals from different disciplines or settings actively contribute to the management of a patient, has been widely advocated in many branches of medicine. Patient-held records are the most common method of sharing care. Few formalised shared care schemes exist within psychiatry and the evidence-base for sharing psychiatric care is weak. Objective: To evaluate the effectiveness and acceptability of patient-held shared care records for individuals with long-term mental illness Design: Cluster-randomised controlled parallel-group trial. Setting: General practices within the catchment area of a teaching hospital in North London. Subjects: Ninety patients with long-term mental illness who were at the point of discharge following an inpatient-episode on the psychiatric unit. To be included, subjects had to be registered with a general practitioner and have follow-up arranged through the local psychiatric service.
