When you first come you will talk to one of our experienced health professionals for about an hour (but it might take longer) who will assess what your problem is. We will ask you to fill in some health and/or screening questionnaires and we may carry out a physical examination and/or blood tests. What happens next depends on the findings of the initial assessment and what sort of help you want. It maybe the case that we can provide you with some information and that we don’t need to see you again. It maybe that we refer you immediately to a specialist practitioner or it maybe that we invite you to come to another appointment so that we can continue with a more detailed assessment.
Please expect your first appointment to last around 1 1/2 to 2 hours
