Your first visit
When you arrive you will be greeted by a member of our friendly staff team, we'll have a quick chat about what support we can offer you. We know it can seem daunting at first, but you can chat with staff in our waiting room and have a hot drink before your appointment.
If you are using our open access service, you will be asked to complete a short questionnaire. This will give us basic information needed for your assessment. You will be seen in order of arrival, which means there may be a short wait, but we will try to keep waiting times to a minimum. The assessment itself can take up to approximately one hour.
If you'd like to bring a friend or family member for support, please do.
