PPCS - Psychiatric & Psychological Consultant Services

Clinics

PPCS has a range of specialist clinics including:

Arts Clinic
The Arts Clinic caters to individuals working in, or associated with, the creative industries. In practice, the staff involved have specialist knowledge or experience of the creative environment, and are able to use this to inform treatment.

Women's Clinic
The Women's Clinic recognises the wishes of many women to address women's issues in a female environment. In this case, psychiatrists, psychologists or counsellors will be female, and will have experience of issues affecting women, in the workplace, domestically or in society generally.

Trauma Clinic
The Trauma Clinic is for patients who have experienced traumatic events or personal injury. DOH Guidelines recognise specialist requirements in Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and many patients will be suffering from PTSD. This clinic, however, also addresses the problems associated generally with personal injury.

Brain Injury Clinic
The Brain Injury Clinic recognises the needs of brain injured patients for specialist assessment or treatment. Recent work has emphasised the particular difficulties associated with moderate brain injury in subsequent personal relationships, and the clinic often needs to work with patients, spouse/partners and families.

Outcare Clinic
This service does not fall within the clinic definition above. It provides a quality and evidence based independent community service. It is operationally led by an experienced clinician and staffed by a team of flexible and skilled staff with experience of community work and psychiatric assessments. All packages of care are tailored specifically to meet the need of the patient, following a standard care planning approach. The Outcare programme is a modern and realistic alternative to traditional inpatient care for psychiatric and substance misuse patients. The service provides home based treatment, with 24 hour a day, seven day a week support available for patients from an experienced mental health team. The service has access to all of the specialist professional input available from the Company, including Consultant Psychiatrists, Clinical and Counselling Psychologists, Occupational Therapists, Nurses, Counsellors and Therapists.
