Psychiatrists are trained medical doctors who specialise in mental health. A one-off assessment is conducted and a comprehensive management plan is formulated.
Psychologists, Psychotherapists and Counsellors focus extensively on treating emotional and mental suffering in patients.
Referrals to the Nelson Clinic
Our psychiatrists provide general adult psychiatric consultations on referral from:
- Insurance Company
- Medico-Legal Report Request
Private referral from a GP
Assessment by our psychiatrists is provided on the basis of a one-off consultation. This means clients are assessed and a comprehensive management plan is formulated, with the idea that it can be implemented by the client’s GP.
Cases that are more acute/severe are not suitable for referral to the Nelson Clinic. All referrals will be reviewed and the GP will be advised if the referral is not appropriate for assessment at the Nelson Clinic. In those cases, public mental health follow-up is usually recommended.
There is a minimum wait time of approximately 6 weeks for an appointment.
