Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic the Clinical Health Psychology service has amended its service provision to meet with current safety guidelines. In order to reduce the risk to you and our staff we are offering appointments on a virtual basis (phone or zoom video link) with limited in person appointments managed in line with current COVID-19 Infection and Prevention Control guidelines. Group programmes have been suspended and will be offered virtually in due course. We continue to review our service provision in line with emerging government and NHS guidance. Should you have any questions in relation to accessing the service please do not hesitate to contact us.
Psychological services are offered to adults who are experiencing psychological difficulties resulting from their physical health condition and its associated treatment/management. Services are offered to people with cardiology, diabetes, oncology, pain, renal and respiratory conditions.
Our service also includes a service for Young Adults (18 to 26 years) living with diabetes.
The focus of input from our service is the psychological difficulties that can result from having a long term health condition/health diagnosis and the health interventions associated with it. The aim of service provision is to support the person’s management of their psychological health in the context of living with a health condition.
If you are finding your health condition is impacting negatively on your psychological health speak with your health care team who can make a referral through to our service.
The service operates Monday to Friday from 9:00am – 5:00pm.
Our offices are based at Holywell Hospital, but we aim to offer appointments across the Northern Trust area.
