Hi, DRi has been an exam centre since spring this year. They have acute wards (16-65), Old age, Rehab unit which is well established and  well resourced. Most of the exam cases are  likely to be rehab cases, cos we did the case summaries for examiners in spring this year. You might also expect a few rehab cases which have forensic history i.e pts who are on restriction orders.

They also  provide LD services (which is not well established) and I dont remember any LD cases from last time. Most of the rehab patients are stable with residual symptoms and have a lenghty history.

I also remember an eating disorder case with comorbid depression and strong borderline personalty traits (a long standing female pt on acute ward). She agreed to be an exam case and again this is for spring this year.

Hope this is helpful. Good luck. :)
