In the majority of cases, clients will need a full one hour assessment, including a formal diagnosis where indicated, with a written opinion or assessment letter and/or a suggested treatment plan. This will cost £300.00 which is payable in advance.

There may be additional fees payable after the assessment, for which you will receive an invoice, for example, for the costs for prescribing medication agreed between you and the psychiatrist at the time of assessment.

You will also be charged, by the minute, for any extra time spent in the consultation if the meeting runs over one hour.

NHS Funding

You should, in theory, be able to exercise your right to choice to have an appointment with us as we are a CQC registered provider of services to the NHS. Unfortunately, the current guidelines are that that choice is limited to providers who already have contracts to supply services in your local area.

If you would like to approach your GP and to ask him or her to support an application to get funding, we would be happy to discuss this with your GP and help in making such an application.
