Parent perceptions of the Parent Consultation Service (PCS)

The Anna Freud Centre’s Parent Consultation Service (PCS) is an accessible, responsive, one-off, 30 minute telephone based consultation service for parents who have concerns about their child’s psychological wellbeing.

The consultation takes place at a pre-allocated time to suit the parent and enables both the parent and clinician to collaboratively develop (drawing on shared decision making principles) a fuller understanding of the child (from 0-18) and the context around the child and family.

Following the call, parents are routinely asked to complete an evaluation form sent out with a letter summarising the consultation.
