Contacts and Clinics
COVID-19 related measures - updated 04 04 2020
We are doing our best to keep clinics open for as long as possible recognizing that young people with mental health disorders will be experiencing additional stresses over the coming weeks and months and will require ongoing support.
Holmfield Consulting Rooms
Clinics remain open at Holmfield Consulting Rooms but with facilities to sanitize or wash hands together with measures to facilitate social distancing within the clinic. Because the waiting room is small we are allowing one carer to stay in the waiting room during the consultaton. Other familiy members are requested to wait in their car.
New patients are requested to attend this clinic at least for an initial assessment.
At Spire Leicester Hospital, all Dr Thorley's clinics have now been cancelled from and including the 28th March 2020. From 15th April 2020 all outpatient clinics across all specialities will be closed as the hopital's resources are transfered to the NHS.
By now, future patient appointments have all been cancelled and patients directed to the Holmfied Consulting Rooms if appointments are still required.
Dr Thorley offers telephone advice/consultations for existing patients unable or reluctant to attend clinics who do not have current appointments. Please call or e-mail Dr Thorley's secretary to request a call giving convenient dates and times you would like a consultation.
Patients may self refer although it is best to have an initial discussion with Dr Thorley's secretary (see contact details below) before doing so. Otherwise it imay be helpful to have a GP referral letter and if claiming on health insurance, this is usually an essential requirement.
Dr Thorley is registered with all the major health Insurance companies except for BUPA. Patients are advised always to discuss a potenial referral with their health insurers first before making an appointment.
The cost of therapy is an important consideration and details of current fee levels can be obtained from Dr Thorley's secretary or at either of the hospital clinics. To keep costs reasonable, Dr Thorley seeks to use the most effective therapies and aims to complete an intervention in the shortest possible time. His long and specialist experinence in working solely with young people ensures the best possible service.
