Following referral our administrator Trish will get in touch to arrange an appointment at a convenient location and time. For some types of assessment we may wish to send you some information or questionnaires in advance. In such cases it is helpful if you are able to return any completed questionnaires to us prior to your appointment.
You will always be seen by a Consultant Psychiatrist and you are welcome to bring along a relative or a trusted friend if you wish. During your assessment we will take time to gain a holistic understanding of your difficulties and needs. Based on this we will share our opinion on diagnosis and treatment options. We will also send you a copy of our assessment by post following the appointment for your information (unless you do not wish to receive this).
Depending on your needs we will discuss the option of follow-up appointment(s) and make arrangements for this.
We have links with local psychological therapists and are happy to make onward referrals for this if required.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries or concerns at any stage.
