General Neuropsychiatry Referral

In our general neuropsychiatry service we provide psychiatric assessment for mental health problems associated with neurological disease.

We accept referrals from GP’s, and secondary clinicians such as neurologists and psychiatrists. We will consider any appropriate referral that meets our basic criteria and requires a tertiary service.

How to refer

We do not operate an emergency service for acutely unwell or at-risk patients.

Examples of the kinds of problems we can offer assessment and support for include psychiatric aspects of:

  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Epilepsy
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Young onset dementia
  • Tourette’s Syndrome
  • Neurodevelopmental disorders

Our service consists of an outpatient clinic staffed by psychiatrists. We also operate an inpatient service with a multidisciplinary team that includes medical and psychiatric nurse therapists, along with occupational therapists, physiotherapists and psychological therapists. We can offer elective (planned) admissions for assessment and treatment. We occasionally offer joint admissions under neurology and psychiatry where complex cases require an interdisciplinary assessment.
