Hi..new to all this and not too goodon computer. Trying to get a proper diagnosis of my mental health condition. NHS doesn't have time to discuss everything happening since last year. Has anyone used a private consultant psychiatrist and paid for it? On second lot of antidepressants but not working. Thanks.

Would you like to see a private psychiatrist. The cost is usually about £175 per hour. Have you not had a diagnosis at all. Only a consultant psychiatrist can diagnose you. I am sorry you are in that situation. Be careful if you go private. I actually work for a consultant psychiatrist and he is brilliant. He takes a full history etc and does not rush his patients. Ironic when I suffer from GAD but hide it extremely good as only my hubby knows and the doc and therapist. Xx

Thankyou...Have had a diagnosis of depression and anxiety from Mental health nurse back in November just from asking questions. Have only had one face to face with a doctor from the practice this year. I know there are many types of anxiety. Have been a week on new antidepressants which have increased anxiety over weekend. The practice haven't done anything about my request for a referral to private treatment. Happy to pay for a proper diagnosis. Waiting on phone call from Doctor today.
