I am a general adult psychiatrist which means I deal with most acute and emergency situations. The key  to treatment involves the right mix of medication, talking treatment and sometimes admission. I’m very keen on involving the family where appropriate. I will take on situations which feel hopeless and see people quickly.

In my view there is always something that can be done to help.

Sending an email is a good option. Occasionally emails are slow to arrive and even disappear before they arrive. You might want to check “send read receipt”. Slow emails affect everybody, and in the end there is not a lot that can be done about it, because it is caused by the way spam is managed by Internet Service Providers.

We do still have a fax number, and that works.

Old patients.

Even if I cannot offer medical advice I am always pleased to hear how people are getting on and I can point you in the right direction if you need to be seen.
