How does the self-referral process work?

Navigating the self-referral process is an important step towards your healing journey, and we understand that you will likely have questions about Ketamine-Assisted Therapy. Many answers can be found in our FAQs, including medical eligibility criteria and the process you’ll go through during treatment.


Step 1
Referral received

Our clinical team is reviewing your referral to confirm the treatment is suitable for you and will call if we have any questions.


Step 2
Referral verified

Once verified, we will need a translated (in English) copy of your health record from your family physician (GP) – don’t worry, we will let you know what information we need to see.


Step 3
Register with UK GP Practice

After receiving your care record, you will need to register with a UK GP practice for the course of your treatment – we will directly support you with this step.


Step 4
Initial Medical Assessment (IMA)

Once your referral is reviewed, you are invited to our clinic to discuss your case with our consultant psychiatrist to ensure the treatment is right for you.


Step 5
Begin treatment

After your IMA, our multi-disciplinary team will review your case and allocate a therapist; our team will contact you to schedule the appointments and begin treatment.

What happens next?

Your responses will provide valuable insights into your needs, allowing us to tailor our approach to your treatment.

To ensure your eligibility for Ketamine-Assisted Therapy, 
we will conduct a thorough assessment, which includes 
a review of your medical notes held by your GP (with your consent) and, if needed, a face-to-face medical assessment at our clinic.

Though referring yourself can feel intimidating, we’re here to support you at every stage.

Your first step to lasting change takes place right here.


FAQs for overseas referrals

Do I need a referral?

You do not need a formal referral from your GP, though we will ask to see your medical record. Anyone may self-refer to the clinic to be assessed for possible treatment.

Do I need to be registered by a UK GP?

All clients from abroad will need to be registered with a UK GP. This is easy to do and if you contact our team they will be happy to help.

How many visits will I need to make?

After an Initial Medical Assessment (IMA) which can be done online, you will ideally be required to attend your dosing and Integration appointments over 4 consecutive weeks if undergoing the KAP programme and 3 consecutive weeks if undergoing the KARE programme.

Your dosing appointment will take place on one day and this is followed by the Integration appointment for next day.

See the full timeline here.

There is scope for some adaptations but this will need to be discussed beforehand. The Preparation and Final Evaluation may be attended online, however, we would recommend as many in person appointments as is possible.

 

How long does a treatment visit take?

Non-drug sessions are 50 minutes long. The drug sessions are two hours long. After each drug session, you will be able to stay in the clinic until you feel able to leave to go home. You will not be able to drive yourself home after a drug session. We will request that you are accompanied home by a named individual whom you have identified in advance of starting the treatment.

Is language a barrier?

Due to the importance of the therapeutic alliance in this treatment model, it is not possible to have an interpreter. Therefore, a fair understanding of the English language is required.

What if I need follow-up care after returning home?

We offer a step down programme which you can access which involves further support calls and recommendations for further integration support. This will be discussed with you towards the end of your treatment.

Will I require a support person on day of dosing?

It is important that you have a support person after your dosing experience to ensure your safe passage to your accommodation. If you are unable to bring someone with you, you can contact Curam Care where you can hire a support worker of your choice.
