For any appointment please ring my secretary on 0208 315 8821 or email her on info@jeremybroadhead.co.uk. She will advise you about next steps.

Usually these involve getting a referral letter from your GP, just as you would if seeing a specialist within the NHS. It does not have to include much detail, but lets me know if you have any physical health problems and the names of any medications you are taking.

If you have medical insurance you should ring your insurance company to check psychiatry is covered and find out their requirements. For example, they may insist on the GP referral and want a report from me, which would be provided free of charge. I am recognised by all the major UK insurers.

If you do not have health insurance ring or email Carol and she can give you details of costs and how to pay.

You can choose which clinic is most convenient for you. The clinics are in: Bromley, at The Priory Hayes Grove; Croydon, at the Shirley Oaks Hospital; or in Sevenoaks, at the Sevenoaks Medical Centre. Hours at each are as follows:

Wherever I see you you would have access to the facilities at The Priory Hayes Grove.

At the first appointment I would spend between an hour and an hour and a half with you finding out about the problems that need addressing. I will also need to learn more generally about your life, for example, your upbringing, your career and relationships, health and alcohol use. With this information it is possible to advise what courses of treatment are likely to be helpful, for example which sort of talking treatment, what medication, if any, or a combination of talking and medicine. The aim is to inform you about any treatments and you can then choose, with advice, the best route forward.

Sometimes, it is simply helpful to get a second opinion about a diagnosis or treatment which is being provided elsewhere.

In most situations I write to your GP regularly so they are informed about your treatment and progress. Often it will be your GP who prescribes for you, if medicines are necesary.
