Dr Diana Coffey
What to expect during the initial assessment?
During the initial assessment, you will have a comprehensive assessment of your mental health situation and relevant background. If necessary, you will be asked to complete structured assessments to enable accurate diagnosis. After the initial assessment, you will receive a clinic letter
with your diagnosis, recommended medication changes, recommended investigations, treatment plan and other advice. With your consent, a copy of this assessment could be sent to your GP.
If you require a prescription, this could be issued during the appointment or ordered online from a private pharmacy. Alternatively, your GP could be advised about recommended medication changes.
What kind of appointments are available?
I offer face-to-face and video consultations, and telephone consultations for the existing patients. Please see the available options and fees on this website.
How to arrange an appointment?
To arrange an appointment, you can self-refer. Prior to the assessment, I request a GP summary to obtain relevant medical history and investigations. I do not usually accept patients without GP summary unless there are exceptional circumstances.
Referrals are also accepted from other doctors, insurance companies or mental health professionals.
