In situations where a person is unsure about my assessment or my treatment suggestions I fully support their obtaining another opinion from a specialist of their choosing. I can also advise if necessary of specialists with particular expertise in special areas. In a situation where treatment is not working as I would like or if unusual complications occur I will ask if I may seek the opinion of a colleague to assist in a patient’s treatment.


When I am away I will arrange for another psychiatrist to manage patients as required until I return.
