  • What conditions can be referred?

    The Psychological Therapy Services accepts referrals for chronic physical health problems, including:

    • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

    • Fibromyalgia Syndrome
    • Functional gastrointestinal disorders such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), functional dyspepsia, chronic abdominal pain
  • What should I expect when I come to my appointment?

    At the first appointment a senior therapist will perform a thorough assessment lasting about an hour, and discuss with you if the therapy is appropriate and could be helpful for you. Follow-up sessions are on an individual or group basis. The sessions are usually weekly and vary from six to eight sessions.
  • Your appointment

    If you are unable to attend your appointment please let us know at least 48 hours beforehand so we can offer your appointment to someone else. If you do not attend your appointment without telling us we may refer you back to your GP. After completion of your treatment you will be referred back to your GP.
  • Professional education and training

    The RLHIM is also a teaching hospital and from time to time other healthcare professionals may observe in outpatient clinics as part of a training course. We will always ask your permission for students to sit in during your consultation. You do not have to have students present if you would prefer not to.
