The assessment also includes an exchange of information with any treating clinicians, and relevant family members or partners. Our Hospitality Manager phones new patients prior to their arrival to discuss their hospitality preferences or needs, and then ensures that your needs are met by liaising with staff from all departments on your behalf.
A full clinical and psychotherapeutic assessment takes place once the client arrives at Castle Craig and is seen by the team.
