We are located in Hamilton and have been providing psychiatric services since 2002. The main focus of our business has been psychiatric reports for the legal profession, ACC, Asian (Korean) cultural second opinions and Child and Adolescent Mental Health.
Although we are located in Hamilton we are able to provide some services in other regions of New Zealand and on occasions may travel to provide assessments or psychiatric reports. We prefer referrals from GPs, ACC or lawyers to ensure that we are provided with relevant medical information and maintain links with primary care physicians.
We have experience in the mental health services in New Zealand and have expertise in medico-legal matters. We are able to provide expert opinions to the court through reports or by expert testimony as required. We have provided second opinions to the mental health courts as well as the criminal and civil courts. We have experience in reviewing serious incidents in mental health services with Root Cause Analysis, providing a systems review. We have supervised trainees and other health professionals and had involvement in various research activities.
We have specialist registration in the field of psychiatry within New Zealand and maintain our professional standards through participation in the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists CME programme.
