New psychology service

Oct 20, 2020

Ramsay Health Care is strengthening its commitment to mental health services with the launch of a dedicated psychology service.

The first ‘Ramsay Psychology’ has opened in Sydney at Northside Group St Leonards Clinic and is a unique haven for patients seeking psychology services and support with a broad range of experienced psychologists under the one roof.

Ramsay Health Care Mental Health Service Line Director, David McGrath said patients could get help for conditions including anxiety, depression, general mood disorders, trauma and addictions.

“People know and trust the Ramsay brand because we’ve been in the business of mental health care since 1964 so, by launching Ramsay Psychology, our clients know they’re getting access to the best care,” Mr McGrath said.

“Ramsay Psychology also has linkages back to all of Ramsay’s facilities meaning, if required, we have rapid assessment for people who may require access to our Consultant Psychiatrists or other mental health services.

“Our purposely-designed triage questionnaire, along with our group of psychologists experienced in a range of special interest, means we are able to expertly match clients with the clinician who is best suited to their needs.”

Clients can access the service privately or with a Mental Health Care Plan from their GP and sessions are offered face-to-face or via video conferencing technology to suit the client’s lifestyle and condition. We are also able to service regional and remote areas.

The launch of Ramsay Psychology comes at a time when mental health services are in more demand than ever before, with people experiencing anxiety and depression as a result of the isolation and uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Northside Group CEO, Anne Mortimer, said that the opening the first Ramsay Psychology onsite at Northside Group St Leonards Clinic, has allowed collaboration between the experienced team at Northside and the Ramsay Psychology team to create more choice for the patient and their referring doctor.

“We want to use our expertise and the strong Ramsay reputation to expand our services into the community ensuring people have increased access to psychology services at a time when they are needing it.”
