This newly established NHS service is accessible to people aged 18 and upwards who are registered with an East Lothian GP practice and are looking for support with their mental health. The team is staffed by experienced Mental Health Occupational Therapists and Community Mental Health Nurses who will work with patients with symptoms of anxiety, emotional distress, low mood, psychosis, known mental health problems, depression, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
There is no requirement to contact your GP Practice first. Patients can self refer to the service by contacting the team (based at East Lothian Community Hospital) on the telephone number above. Due to the Covid19 crisis, consultations will be telephone based with the option to also use video conferencing.
