What to expect at your first appointment

Can I bring someone with me to my appointment?

You may wish to bring a family member, friend or advocate to your appointment with you. Advocacy services make sure that people have the support they need for their voice to be heard.

For more information on advocacy services or if you would like to bring someone with you to your appointment, please contact your administrator or call the switchboard on 020 7794 2313

Will my information and what we discuss be kept confidential?

Our clinicians and staff aim to provide you with the highest quality of care. To do this we need to keep records about you, your health and the services we have provided or plan to provide to you. We value your privacy and the security of your personal information.

Your clinician will discuss confidentiality with you in your first session. We understand how important confidentiality is and abide strictly to data protection laws that allow us to share information only with your knowledge and consent, or, in very rare instances where we are legally obliged to do so.
