New specialist OCD clinic – Oxford

OCD-UK NHS and Health

Exclusive news for OCD-UK members.

We understand there will be a new specialist anxiety clinic, with a specific focus on treating OCD, opening its doors in Oxford during early 2019. Our understanding is the clinic was formally approved and they are now in the process of the recruitment of staff in time for an official launch, expected by the end of the first quarter of 2019.

Because there are no admin staff or even a clinic name right now, there is no formal referral route. Our understanding is the clinic will be CCG referral only (you will need your local NHS to agree to refer/fund treatment), and the clinic will accept patients of all ages, including children.  Treatment will also be tailored around the individual to offer what the patient needs and fits their home/work life,  so treatment might consist of routine outpatient, intensive (outpatient) and even home based where applicable.

We will keep you posted on further developments in the new year.
