Sally was extremely helpful and reliable throughout titration. she genuinely cares and is very responsive to individual needs. when there was a delay in receiving my meds due to the postal strikes, she went above and beyond.
The team are diligent, patient and kind. They’ve really made a difference in my life.
Nurse Helen was there to support me throughout my diagnosis of ADHD. They were patient with me for months as we were trying to find which medication would work best for me. I really appreciate everyone's support throughout.
There's not very much to say about Psychiatry uk other than I have no complaints whatsoever. They've done everything correctly as far as I can see and the staff have been considerate, polite and understanding whenever I have been in contact with them. This should be looked on as a glowing review because I am a pedantic old bugger and if there was any fault to be found I would find it. The doctor assigned to me, Dr Alan Cross is the person who I have spoke with throughout and he has been nothing short of wonderful, I cannot recommend this doctor, and by association Psychiatry uk, enough, they have changed my life, so if you need the sort of help they provide I would say look no further.
Great service all round contacted promptly and the help and care given by Dr Alan cross was fantastic
I'm so relieved that I chose Psychiatry uk via NHS Right to choose after relatives suggested I may have adhd. It took several months to get an initial appointment for the consultation. This took one hour over Zoom and I was satisfied with the diagnosis. It then took another six months until I could start titration. (These timescales are about average and may be higher now due to demand). I used the online portal extensively during titration and it's important to send case notes and complete the forms on time to get the best out of the service. I spoke to my prescribing doctor a few times initially due to not getting on with stimulants. He was sympathetic and knowledgeable about options etc. I did lots of research and shared concerns/ideas with the prescribing doctor and we worked together to find what works. I've been happy with the service and eternally grateful for finding suitable medication that now makes my life a lot easier and happier.
I was treated for ADHD and I think it is such a shame that the treatment of ADHD does not seem to take account of many typical ADHD traits. I did not feel properly supported during this treatment and it has been a great source of anxiety for me, which I feel could have been avoided with better communication, clearer information, and at least one face to face conversation.
Psychiatry UK is a very serious and professional institution that analyses in depth each and every one of your symptoms using not only your self-stated symptoms but also your past history and the statement of closely related individuals in order to gather impartial/unbiased information also. The only "issue" is the time it takes to get a consultation and for the treatment to start (although it is due to a high volume of patients requiring assessments too). However, you do receive updates about the next steps of your treatment and when you are expected to have the first appointment, when the titration process is planned to start and when your medication is likely to be delivered. If through your assessment, the psychiatrist believes that you would benefit from getting medicated, they will explain what are the types of medication usually used to treat your condition and will suggest the most recommended type for your specific case. If you agree to be medicated, they send you a blood pressure machine at home and you start a titration process. The titration process is very well conducted. You have a prescriber who indicates which medication they suggest you taking, the dosage you will start with and you review the effects of the medication every week. The review include your current medication and dosage you are taking, your weight, height, side affects (if any) and the effect in the symptoms of your condition. If the medication or the dosage does not work at first, the prescriber makes the necessary changes until you reach a satisfactory level of improvements in your symptoms. Overall, highly recommended service, specially considering how serious they take their patients and that is available for the whole population at no costs.
Was overall a really easy and positive experience, was a long process of trial and error to find one that suited my needs and worked best for me individually. My prescriber was kind and attentive and made sure to follow up on specific points made even weeks before
I was given medication for ADHD and then fell down a rabbit hole between the admin, doctor, and prescribing nurse. I had come over my anti-depressants to try new ADHD medication and I have been left for 8 weeks with nothing and customer services have not replied to me. The whole process has big holes in it, the right-hand does not talk to the left hand, and vice-versa. I have been left in a very difficult place with mental health and I can't get anybody to help me. NO DUTY OF CARE OR ETHICAL PRACTICE HERE . Maybe it's becasue I am a NHS patient ?
