Liaison psychiatry is the interface between physical and mental health and deals with those disorders in which mental (emotional or thinking) or behavioural features are prominent. According to the Royal College of Psychiatrists, UK, nearly 25% of all patients in general hospitals have mental health problems and 60% of admitted people above 65yrs will develop a mental disorder during their admission.
