Psychotherapy Services

Bolton, Salford and Trafford Mental Health NHS Trust, Primary Care Psychology Services have been providing short term, evidence based psychological assessment and therapies to the patients of the Sides Medical Centre since the early 1990s.

We have Counsellors, Cognitive Behaviour Therapists and Clinical Psychologists who provide psychological therapies. Our therapists see clients in GP surgeries and Medical Centres around the North Locality (Swinton, Pendlebury and Worsley).

We are able to see clients above the age of 16 years who are referred after a consultation with their GP. Most of the therapy we offer is to individual clients, though we are increasingly looking to develop group work, where this is demonstrated to be clinically effective.

Mental Health Reviews and Memory Loss Services

For our patients with certain mental health conditions or memory loss problems, an annual review of their physical health will be offered by our Practice nursing team. After that the patient will be invited to see the doctor to discuss any problems found as well as discussing any social or carer issues that may be of concern and a care plan will be drawn up to aid long-term management.
