What GPs think of Nightingale Hospital

“Nightingale Hospital is undoubtedly one of the leading private psychiatric hospitals in London and I have always been very happy with the care and attention provided to all my patients. Nightingale Hospital have an excellent choice of psychiatrists and therapists for us general practitioners to refer to and the GP liaison team have always been extremely helpful in providing advice to myself and all my colleagues at the Moore Medical Practice.”

Dr Simon Moore, Moore Medical Practice, SW3 5AW

“Nightingale Hospital is a fantastic resource for Central London patients and GPs. Its Psychiatrists and Psychologists have a wealth and breadth of experience and can provide tailor made care for patients, from those who require help with problems such as Depression, Social Anxiety and Food Addiction, to Alcohol Rehabilitation, and Acute Psychosis. Its educational events for GPs are excellent too.”

Dr Lisa Wray, The Newton Medical Centre, W2

“Nightingale Hospital continues to provide an excellent service, both on an inpatient and outpatient basis. The range of services provided enables me to place patients swiftly and appropriately”

Dr David Myers, Myers Medical Group, NW11 9PY

“I use Nightingale Hospital London as my preferred referral centre for patients with mental health issues. The liaison helpdesk act with speed and professionalism to make the burden of referral administration almost effortless. Consultant care is consistently excellent and aftercare and communication provide exceptional quality of care in this difficult area.”

Ruth Whitby, The Platinum Medical Centre, NW8 7JA

“A refreshing change to the usual Mental Health Services on offer in this country.”


“As an occupational physician I see many patients in times of great difficulty, some distressed due to problems arising at work and others with issues affecting their ability to work. For many years I have been able to rely on the prompt, kind and effective care that is invariably provided by specialists at the Nightingale Hospital which enables recovery and a chance to rebuild lives that can so often seem shattered beyond repair. This supports an early return to work, which is such an essential part of the journey back to normal life and which is so valued by my patients.”

Dr Mark Harvey, Occupational Physician & Medical Director, Health Management

“Nightingale hospital provides an excellent service for both inpatients and outpatients or just one off consultations; a wide range of psychiatrists, psychologists and therapists covering more or less all aspects of mental health are available and provide a top class, highly professional service.”

Dr Michaela Schuhwerk, GP, Knightsbridge Doctors

“I am always really impressed with the level of care and attention which my patients receive at Nightingale Hospital, London. This is my go-to hospital for acute assessments and admissions and I have never been let down by the administration teams or the clinicians.”

Dr Elaine Tickle, GP, Tickle Medical Services, Harley Street, W1

“We have had a few patients referred at very short notice and the team at Nightingale have been excellent in facilitating assessments and admissions. We have also had helpful reports sent back to us to assist in managing the patient from an OH perspective. Without reports our work is very difficult as we need impartial expert advice, this is reliably good in my experience from the Nightingale doctors.”

Occupational Health Manager, Central London

“I have always found the Nightingale Hospital to be very helpful and prompt in their responses to enquiries or referrals. They offer a wide variety of Psychological and Psychiatric approaches and disciplines, which means that the client can have therapy or an intervention that is tailored to their individual needs. This is something that I feel is particularly important in the field of mental health and psychological distress.”
