You need to see a psychiatrist to be diagnosed or have an updated outpatients letter to your gp saying what you have, if anything.

Diagnosis will be at the top of the letter the psychiatrist sends

heard off the 2nd opinion clinic at the maudsley don't know if it's still going, i felt whats the point i've experienced been rediagnosed unless your fit for work big time and can explain your unemployment history, what's the point, it'll just be held against you, cynical me would ask if the person wanting you rediagnosed is overworked and is looking for an excuse to close the case
