May 17, 2013, 10:29 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- The Addictions Clinical Academic Group at South London and The Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust today announced a new pilot scheme offering private addiction treatment in London from their team of experts.
Nationally recognised as some of the UK’s leading addiction experts and part of the National Addiction Centre, the Maudsley team currently provide expert advice to a number of professional bodies including the GMC, the CAA, and National Air Traffic Control amongst others.
The new scheme will utilise some of their specialist addiction Consultants who will work with the private provider Clinical Partners to offer treatment to private patients in central London.
The new service will accept self-referring patients as well as referred privately funded patients from both NHS and Private Doctors and referrals from private companies. Clients are seen by the Maudsley clinicians at the Clinical Partners Wimpole Street and City consulting rooms. This is the first time that many of these distinguished clinicians have been available for patients to see privately.
The new outpatient services allow patients to continue to work while receiving the treatment they need, as well as referring those needing inpatient care to a choice of NHS and private providers. The team of Consultant Psychiatrists, Psychologists and Therapists are able to help with a wide range of addictions including alcohol, drugs, prescription medication, party drugs and sex, spending or gambling.
Mark Allen, Service Director at the Addictions Clinical Academic Group said “We’re delighted to bring some of SLAM’s expertise to this innovative new partnership between the private and public sectors.”
Barny Guthrie, CEO of Clinical Partners, said “Clinical Partners is very happy to be able to offer our clients access to some of the UK’s top addiction specialists. The Maudsley Hospital is host to a huge amount of talent and expertise and we are extremely pleased that SLAM has chosen to work with Clinical Partners.”
