Frequently asked questions

What age groups do you see?

Adults, i.e. those aged 18-64.

Do you offer urgent appointments?

We can as a rule offer an appointment at short notice. There is no waiting list.

Is my treatment covered by my medical insurance?

Dr McEvedy is covered by all major UK insurers, but you should contact your insurer before the appointment, both to check that you are covered and to obtain a pre-authorisation reference number. Some insurers will need to have a referral letter from your GP.

Do I need a referral from my GP?

Yes, this is advised with this remote practice, as your medical care is best when coordinated through your GP. As above, some insurers will need a GP referral letter. We will keep your GP informed, unless you indicate otherwise.

Should I see a psychiatrist, psychologist or psychotherapist?

Dr Chris McEvedy is a London Harley Street Psychiatrist offering specialist face to face and online assessment and treatment for psychological difficulties and disorders.

These allied clinicians often work together; and we would discuss your program of treatment as part of your first appointment.
