As the first point of contact for most people experiencing anxiety and depression related symptoms, general practitioners play a critical advisory role which can affect a patients emotional well being for many years. It is a significant responsibility to know that your initial assistance can provide a profound positive or negative influence that patients can carry around with them for years. Criticism is often leveled at psychologists for not being proactive enough in informing general practitioners of the support services they are able to provide to ensure the best treatment outcomes for patients. At NSWADTC we aim to do our part to remedy this situation by being available to provide information to general practitioners and effective evidence based treatment programs for their patients as required.

In this regard the psychologists of NSWADTC are very pleased to offer your practice an informative, in person, evidence based treatment update which can be conducted at your rooms at a time you find most convenient. We are also interested in discussing how we may support you and your patients under the federal governments new allied health enhanced primary care initiative.

If you would like us to make a brief or in depth presentation to staff at your practice, would just like to speak with us in person, or would like us to send brochures and other information to you, please feel free to contact us at any time by email or telephone.
