What happens when I come to the assessment appointment?

When you first contact the service you will booked in for a short telephone assessment. This helps us understand your issues and identify the best way to support you. You will then be invited to book an appointment with one of our experienced health professionals who will assess your problems. This appointment will last up to 90 minutes. 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 these initial assessments and what sort of help you want. It may be the case that we can provide you with some information and advice and that you don’t need to see us again. Alternatively, we might refer you immediately to a specialist practitioner or therapist, or invite you to attend another appointment so that we can continue with a more detailed assessment.
