Neurobehaviour Clinic

General description

The Neurobehaviour Clinic is a neuropsychiatric assessment service run on Wednesday and Thursday afernoons at the Repatriation Campus of Austin Health in West Heidelberg.

Its core team is comprised of two psychiatrists, a psychiatric registrar and a neuropsychologist.

The clinic is conveniently run along the same corridor as a neurology movement disorders clinic which facilitates collaborative assessments when problems exist across neurology and psychiatry.

Waiting time for this clinic is approximately 6 weeks and patients receive a letter 4 weeks prior to their appointment requesting a call back to confirm the appointment, which is routine under the current Outpatients Patient Choices Booking system.

An assessment at the Neurobehaviour Clinic may be a "one-off" or involve a series of visits in order to see the psychiatrist (or registrar), the neuropsychologist, or to review the results of pathology or imaging studies.
