What you can expect
Anyone who uses our services first gets an assessment of their mental health needs and a plan of the care and support they will receive. They will also will also have one named person who co-ordinates their care and support. This person should be your main point of contact. You can speak to them about how your treatment and support are going.
We accept referrals from a wide range of neuroscience and mental health professionals, as well as from GPs so long as they are appropriate.
Outpatient referrals are made through a referral letter. For complex patients telephone discussions are welcome once we have received the initial paperwork.
New patients may be seen whilst they are inpatients or day patients at one of the neurology or neurosurgical wards of St. George's Hospital. However, the majority of referrals involve outpatient assessment and treatment.
