About your appointment
Your first appointment with the team will be an assessment in which you will see one or two of the clinicians in the team. The aim of the assessment is for us to understand more about you and your symptoms and how they are impacting on your life. We discuss the information collected at the assessment in our team meeting to arrive at our opinion and recommendations and then we contact the patient to discuss this and agree a treatment plan if appropriate. Appointments mainly take place at our hospital base; however occasionally we see people in their homes and can also offer telephone consultations.
