Furthermore, we welcome referrals from a variety of professionals such as doctors, psychiatrists, social workers, specialized consultants, private companies, solicitors, insurance providers, school teachers, and other healthcare organizations. We are also open to establishing agreements and private arrangements with both NHS and private agencies.
