Last quote by Richard Bentall

The decision about whether ECT is to be used or not is based on the quirks of the local psychiatrist. There are some places where psychiatrists think it works, and they just do it lots of times, and there are some places where people think: 'Bloody hell, I don't think the evidence for this is very good,' so will only do it in absolutely desperate circumstances. My view is that ECT is a classic failure of evidence-based medicine. I don't believe that there are adequate clinical trials of ECT to establish its effectiveness.feedback
