Find out how to access our service and what to expect from rTMS.
What can you expect when referred for rTMS?
You will be offered an initial consultation and assessment with the consultant psychiatrist. Before starting the treatment your appropriate dosage will be agreed as part of the assessment.
You will receive treatment by a consultant psychiatrist and specialist nurses as an out-patient in a dedicated room at our Brentwood rTMS Clinic.
The usual sessions are five per week for four to six weeks of treatment. Each treatment will last up to one hour, during which time you will be fully awake, alert and comfortably seated in a clinically designed chair.
You are welcome to bring someone with you to your appointment. Because it is a safe and non-invasive treatment, you can drive to and from your appointment and resume all your normal activities after the sessions.
Regular reviews of the effectiveness of the treatment will take place and there is also a regular review to ensure the correct dosage is being prescribed.
How can you access our service?
You can be referred directly by your own consultant psychiatrist or patients can also self-refer.
If you are not under the care of a psychiatrist, you can be seen by our consultant psychiatrist who is delivering the rTMS service. They will be able to assess your suitability for the treatment.
Our consultant psychiatrist will also be able to provide a 2nd opinion regarding rTMS treatment, if requested by a psychiatrist or GP.
