Specialist Affective Disorders Treatment Package for Health Care Professionals A unique, expert package of care which includes a one off Assessment together with outpatient treatment sessions (39632). This package is for health care professionals for whom local services are inappropriate for reasons of confidentiality. Our senior clinical academic psychiatrists have considerable experience in treating such individuals and expertise in the management of their complex needs.

The main focus of the outpatient treatment programme is the return of the individual to their professional work in the health service whenever possible, the prevention of recurrence and the avoidance of further health related absence.

Initiation and on-going monitoring of novel drug treatment regimens will consist of up to 48, 30-minute sessions with a consultant psychiatrist to discuss progress, review treatment, address side effects and undertake blood monitoring tests where indicated (drug blood levels, full blood count, urea and electrolytes, liver function tests and thyroid function tests).

The full engagement and support of the local consultant or physician, throughout the individual\'s treatment with the service, is a pre-requisite of acceptance on the treatment programme.
