    Abstract

    A self-administered questionnaire designed for prerecording the routine clinical information required from outpatients has been found to be acceptable to them. Such a questionnaire should greatly ease the collection and recording of basic clinical information and offer the doctor more effective use of his time. With the questionnaire more information was recorded and therefore available in the case notes than at a conventional doctor-patient consultation. No administrative problems occurred in its distribution, use, and return.
