Neuropsychology

Neuropsychology

Clinical Neuropsychologists have a wealth of experience in walking therapeutically with people who have neurological conditions such as brain injuries, epilepsy, or Multiple Sclerosis (MS).

People are helped by our service in a variety of ways, including:

  • Providing a confidential and safe place to talk about your condition, how it feels, and how it affects your life
  • Completing in-depth assessments of your thinking skills, to advise on cognitive strengths and weaknesses or to inform medical diagnoses and treatments
  • Working together to develop strategies to help manage day-to-day life.

 

We are not medical doctors, so we don’t prescribe any medications, and would point you to our medical colleagues for any complex medical queries.

We hope these web pages, resources and videos will give you a better idea of what we do, and offer some help in the meantime if you are waiting for our service.’

Our waiting times explained

In the past 5 years, the number of referrals made to our service has doubled.

Unfortunately this means that there can be a long wait for a first appointment.

We know that this is far from ideal and are trying our best to improve this situation.
If you are currently on our waiting list, please have a look at the resources included on our webpages and information about other sources of help.

Please be aware that we are only able to bring an appointment forwards in cases where a high level of risk has been highlighted by the healthcare professional who made the referral.
