Description:
Faced with lengthy waiting lists in 2012, the Roscommon Child and Family Psychology Service (provided by two psychologists to approximately 17,000 children and their families, in a catchment area of over 2,500 km2) sought to audit its management and prioritisation of referrals. In this article, we review waiting list prioritisation procedures and present a case example of the procedures developed for the service.
