Summary: The utility of screening patients attending a gynaecology clinic for emotional and social disturbances has been investigated. Ninety‐seven patients completed 2 inventories dealing with mental state and role problems. Patients who showed evidence of psychological disturbance reported significantly more role problems, and were less likely to be given orthodox gynaecological treatment. Only 40 patients' conditions were clearly diagnosed. It is concluded that psychological screening of patients attending a public hospital gynaecology clinic provides additional information of an important nature in regard to their clinical management. Further research is necessary to improve diagnosis and treatment amongst gynaecology patients. Copyright © 1977, Wiley Blackwell. All rights reserved
