Hey there,

NHS psychiatry in the UK is renowned for being sub-standard-even by doctors themselves!
My experiences too were particularly awful(an ignorant doc.refusing to consider my suspicions that I was bipolar, and receiving only FOUR appointments in over 3 years, had a grave effect on my illness course.I've griped about that here many times in the past!
Last year I learned of the Priory clinics(very highly regarded, but of course, you pay for it-180 per hour!!-and was impressed with the high-calibre of the psychiatrist I saw there(and continue to see).
My first interview was so thorough it was exhausting,but at least I got a firm diagnosis(and the floors are carpeted too :)
Most of the patients I've chatted with in the waiting rooms have been similarly pleased with their experiences.
Here's the link I first came across...

Best of luck,

Col.
