Psychiatry Consultant Launches New Clinic at West Midlands Hospital

Psychiatry Specialist Launches New Clinic At West Midlands Hospital 1An expert in anxiety disorders and depression in older people is launching a new clinic at West Midlands Hospital.

Dr Raafat Mishriky is a Consultant in Old Age Psychiatry and Dementia and Honorary Senior Lecturer in Old Age Psychiatry who specialises in dementias and memory problems.

The clinic, which takes place twice a month on the second and fourth Monday (4pm-6pm), will provide initial assessments leading to treatment for anxiety disorders and depression.

Patients and family members will have the opportunity to discuss their own personal worries or concerns they have for loved ones with Dr Mishriky in private consultation slots.

Dr Mishriky will make an initial assessment and diagnosis and then patients can start treatment straight away.

Dementias include Alzheimer’s disease, Vascular Dementia, Mixed Dementia, Lewy Body, Dementia in Parkinson’s, Fronto -Temporal Dementia and Dementia in younger age groups.

Dr Mishriky has a special interest in unusual experiences in older adults such as hallucinations, unusual beliefs and challenging behaviours.

He is fluent in English and Arabic and can deliver appointments in either language to suit individual patients. He can also work with interpreters for any other languages.

Self referrals for appointments are accepted but a referral from the GP is the recommended process.

Dr Mishriky stated: “This service is open to people who want to find out more about and be treated for anxiety disorders, depression and a range of different dementias and memory problems.

“All of these conditions are on the rise in the modern day world so people need to know that help is at hand locally.”

Dr Mishriky added: “I’m looking forward to working at West Midlands Hospital to deliver this new service.

“There are many people across the West Midlands region who are affected by dementia, anxiety disorders or depression and this service will give them speedy access to a diagnosis and an appropriate course of treatment.”

To book a consultation slot with Dr Raafat Mishriky, please call West Midlands Hospital on 01384 560123.

West Midlands Hospital is one of the leading private hospitals in the West Midlands region and is part of the Ramsay Health Care group of hospitals which has units in the UK, Australia, France and Indonesia.
