Accessing Psychology Services:
Integrated Treatment Services are able to offer appointments within one week of referral and will not keep you waiting for ongoing appointments when needed. We do not waiting lists so if we are unable to see you immediately we will help sign post you to a service which can.
Integrated Treatment Services will always support you accessing the statutory services (Health/Education) which you are entitled to. We can top up services when statutory services are not available to you. We can work alongside statutory services forming joint plans, when support and services you would like to access are not readily provided for. You can equally choose to contract our services as an alternative to statutory services, which is common practice for many schools/care settings, commissioners and individuals.
Integrated Treatment Services are active partners with charities and vouchers schemes which enable our clients to access our support.
Integrated Treatment Services are registered with all the large insurance companies, therefore if you have insurance cover you may wish to check your policy. Registered providers include: BUPA, Aviva, AXA/PP.
