The Psychology service has the primary role of providing high-quality assessment and formulation of service users’ psychological and mental health problems.
WHAT WE DO
For mental health difficulties we provide evidence-based treatments, as recommended by NICE guidelines, to reduce distress associated with these disorders.
We also supplement this work with additional neuropsychological assessments of cognitive functioning and clarification of diagnostic issues and personality as necessary.
In addition, discussions about clinical and research governance, the appropriateness of treatments and the evidence base for specific disorders, as well as opinions on complex and difficult cases, is also provided.
