We have two Mental Health Nurses Louise and Carmel, who work on a rotation within the Health Centre. The only day we do not have one of them on site is Mondays.
They are specialists in the care of patients with;
- Newly diagnosed depression
- Low mood
They oversee the care of patients with longer term mental health concerns such as;
- Bipolar disorder
- Long term depression
Patients must already be receiving treatment for mental health conditions or have been referred by a GP to be seen by one of our mental health nurses.
Your GP will discuss with you a referral to the mental health nurse at length before any appointment is made. If you are advised to book an appointment with the mental health nurse this is because your GP considers this to be the most appropriate way of continuing your care with us.
