What to expect
Visit your GP, discuss your symptoms and request a referral to the Belfast Psychiatry Clinic.
We require a referral from your GP, which can be made by phone, email or post.
Once we receive your referral, we will contact you and offer an appointment at your convenience.
Arrive at our accessible clinic with free onsite parking.
Meet with your Consultant Psychiatrist
Your first consultation will be of approximately 50 minutes duration. During this time you can, in confidence, discuss your current symptoms with your consultant, who will then explore relevant background information useful in understanding your current difficulties. Following this thorough assessment, a diagnosis and individual treatment plan will be discussed. Sometimes further investigations are required e.g. blood testing, brain imaging etc. but if required this will be discussed in advance.
Following your consultation, a letter will be sent to your GP
If a follow up appointment is required with your private consultant psychiatrist, this will be decided before you leave.
The Belfast Psychiatric Clinic is unable to provide an out of hours emergency service. If you require such help we advise you to contact your GP or out of hours GP services.
