Please leave a note on the portal with your requested amendments and assign the note to ‘Your Doctor’. This is the fastest method for getting any changes made.

Please leave a note on the portal with your request. Assign the note to ‘Your Doctor’ or ‘Your Prescribing Nurse’ if you are in titration. Please do not assign the note to ‘Customer Support’ as this may result in a delay due to the volume of notes that are sent to this team.

Our Values


Recognising and alleviating distress

Whether it’s helping to support a pressured organisation, or the individual who approaches us in need, we aim to ensure from the first contact we can work with you to overcome your difficulties. If there is something we can do to reduce distress or suffering, we will.

“I had an assessment with the Doctor and it was honestly one of the few times I’ve had a pleasant experience with a health professional and gotten what I needed out of the appointment. I was surprised we managed to get through so much of my life in the time frame, and the Doctor was very respectful, calm, empathetic and asking good questions. I never felt uncomfortable during it and it sparked some revelations. I was very anxious and we were talking about some hard topics, but it’s one of the easiest conversations I’ve had with a health professional. The report back was correct and concise and overall P-UK has been the most professional service I’ve used with actually listening and working with instead of against the patient.”


Convenience and availability for all

We want to be able to provide care to people at a time they need it, in the place they need it. We want to reduce barriers to accessing care, and continually simplify the process to access our care. We aim to become accessible to everyone.

“The video quality was very good and I didn’t have a hard time understanding or hearing The Doctor due to any technical issues.”


Improving solutions

Using technology is at the heart of what we do. But we also aim to ensure that our processes are efficient, robust, safe and effective. We also have a responsibility to ensure we are sustainable. Therefore, whether it’s writing a policy, providing a service, or reducing our carbon footprint, we strive to find better ways to do something.

“My treatment and assessment was completed over the phone and via a web portal which was of great help and convenience.”


Doing our very best

We are passionate about continually learning and developing, so that we can offer the best care possible. We will not become complacent, and will always seek ways to improve, aiming to provide the best care possible.

Great service couldn’t have asked for anything else very happy thank you.”

Patient Reviews


Very positive, kind people

I had a very positive experience using Psychiatry UK. During my Initial assessment, I felt heard and understood, and the Titration process was also very positive.

My Clinician responded to my notes almost immediately, helping me to find the perfect dose and type of medication to help manage my symptoms.

I truly felt supported and cared for during my time with the service and have recommended friends to use it too.

Super easy to talk to!

My doctor made me feel really comfortable, supported to be able to talk openly and help me get answers, he was incredibly professional but friendly, informative and understanding, He didn’t make me feel judged or strange he listened without judgement and reassured me, I really appreciate his words of comfort and support he was super easy to talk to as if I was talking to a friend which made the whole process super easy and not scary at all!

The whole team at Psychiatry UK have been amazing, with my diagnosis & my medication journey I was really scared to take medication but the team was on hand with support and advice all through out, I cant thank them enough for the support and help, it has changed my life for the better, I would recommend them to anyone who is wanting support.

Thank you to everyone who worked with me to help & support me.

Changed my life for the better

Psychiatry UK has, quite literally, changed my life. Every staff member I interacted with was warm and understanding, and at no point during my journey did I feel left out of the loop or spoken down to.

The online portal keeping everything in one place helped me to submit the paperwork needed on time (crucial when you’re being diagnosed with ADHD!) and I was always kept up to date with what was happening behind the scenes.

I received my ADHD diagnosis after a thorough consultation and the accompanying titration period managed by their pharmacist felt safe and managed even though I never physically interacted with anyone. I am at the end of this now and am leaving their care confident that I understand myself a little bit better.

Huge thanks!
