Clinical and counselling psychology: Acute and urgent care

Summary

Acute and urgent care psychologists span all acute inpatient wards and crisis and assessment teams in the London boroughs of Ealing, Hammersmith & Fulham, and Hounslow.

The purpose of these psychologists is to provide rapid assessment and brief interventions for service users who are cared for by these teams.

A range of assessments and brief interventions are available on a one to one basis and sometimes in group form depending on uptake.

Psychologists take an individual approach and help to understand the nature of the service users experience and where possible to alleviate the distress associated with it.

Access is by referral from the team or ward in which the service user is.
