About Us

Our History

Independent Psychiatry was established in 2008 by its founder members on the ethos of providing the best possible service and care for individuals requiring psychiatric assistance. Originally based in Glasgow, we have rapidly expanded and now provide assessments throughout the UK due to our commitment and ability to deliver high quality and comprehensive services to our clients, having built up a diverse portfolio of clients from across the Country.

Our Ethos

We believe that everyone has the right to be provided with the quality care and assistance they expect to diagnose and tackle mental health issues. All our services offer a fully independent opinion, and our consultants will always act with integrity in the most professional manner. Our purpose is to deliver an uncompromising level of assessment and care, and to improve the quality of life for the growing number of people struggling with mental health problems.

Our Team

Independent Psychiatry is a team of consultant psychiatrists who are approved under Section 22 of the Mental Health (Care and Treatment) (Scotland) Act 2003 as having special experience in the diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders. We are a professional, hard-working team with considerable experience that strives to deliver the highest possible standard of assessment and care, as well as customer satisfaction.

Our Work

We specialise in working with the Mental Health (Care and Treatment) (Scotland) Act 2003 and the Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Act 2000 and have experts that provide psychiatric opinions for Courts and Tribunals. We also provide medico-legal reports, reports for capacity assessment, risk assessment (e.g HCR20), suicide risk assessment, benefit appeals, immigration applications, parental right appeals, the DVLA, action for eviction, personal injury and employment tribunals amongst others. Our psychiatrists regularly assess fitness for trial, criminal responsibility, diminished responsibility, vulnerable witnesses and have expert witness experience.

For individuals (GP referrals only), we are able to offer psychiatric assessment, diagnosis, and advice and treatment, including advice on prognosis. We are also able to carry out Aspergers and Autism (e.g DISCO) diagnostic assessments.
