Our neuropsychiatry service is an outpatient regional service. It provides assessment and treatment for adults with neurological illness or head injuries who have associated neuropsychiatric problems.
Patients with functional neurological disorders and organic psychiatric conditions are also assessed and managed. The service is closely allied to the regional neuroscience centre based at the Atkinson Morley Wing of St. George's Hospital, serving SW London and Surrey.
We take pride in providing evidence-based cutting-edge clinical services which follow the latest clinical and research advances and set national examples.
Who is this service for?
This service offers assessment and treatment for patients with:
- Neuropsychiatric consequences of neurological conditions, e.g. stroke, head injury, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis or movement disorders.
- Functional Neurological disorders including somatoform, dissociative or conversion disorders, e.g. non-epileptic fits, non-organic movement disorders.
- Organic psychiatric illness, e.g. schizophreniform disorders with organic brain changes
- “Grey zone" disorders which straddle neurology and psychiatry or various rare Neuropsychiatric syndromes
We accept referrals from a wide range of neuroscience and mental health professionals, as well as from GPs as long as they are appropriate.
New patients can be seen whilst they are inpatients or day patients at one of the neurology or neurosurgical wards of St. George's Hospital or Queen Mary's Hospital in Roehampton.
However, the majority of referrals involve outpatient assessment and treatment.
