Access our treatments
For good practice and continuity of care we do recommend that it is in the best interests of patients for there to be a GP referral as it can be useful in providing relevant medical history. If you intend to fund your treatment with private medical insurance, a GP referral letter is a must with most policies.
When we receive your enquiry, call or referral from your health care professional we can help assess the next best steps for you. This may be to organise an appointment with a Consultant Psychiatrist or directly with one of our Therapists.
Initial assessment appointment
This initial appointment with one of our Consultant Psychiatrists or therapists will be to discuss and determine the best treatment plan to suit your needs. This may be weekly outpatient appointments or if you require a more focused approach we may recommend a day therapy or inpatient stay.
Length of treatment
The length of treatment for everyone depends of their individual circumstances such as personal situation, nature and severity of your problem and any financial restraints. Treatment plans could range from six to eight, one hour 1 to1 outpatient therapy sessions to an inpatient stay with a step down plan after.
Seeing a Consultant Psychiatrist
Our Nightingale Hospital team is made up of over 50 Consultant Psychiatrists with expertise covering all mental health and emotional issues, eating disorders and addictions.
For self-paying patients the cost of the initial appointment with a Consultant Psychiatrist depends on which Consultant is seen, and usually lasts an hour.
