Abstract

The prevalence of admission to psychiatric inpatient care in the major immigrant groups in the London Borough of Newham in 1982 is surveyed and results discussed with reference to relevant published literature. High admission rates were found among young West Indian men and older West Indian women, Pakistani men, older Indian women, Irish women and women from the West African new commonwealth. Women from the East African new commonwealth had a low admission rate. The diagnostic mixture found in patients from the various groups is discussed.
