  1. Hi sorry for the delay. I have ocd around writing things so it can be difficult. Thanks for your reply. I live in SW4, Clapham in London which is in borough of Lambeth which seems to be the catchment area I think. Any info you have on this would be much appreciated. I thought that meant that a referral to say the Maudsley would be funded locally and wouldn't go through requests for national funding etc? That is interesting re that patient... Seem to be going round in circles a bit with treatment and I understand the wait for treatment etc. The problem is more waiting for treatment they then tell me isn't appropriate has been frustrating. Any info you have would be much appreciated as a bit confused at moment with the routes! Thanks!
  2. Hi, I've never posted on a forum before so please correct me if I get anything wrong! This seems like a great community and Ive finally joined! I have had severe diagnosed ocd for ten years or so (predominantly contamination but just right/emotional rather than harm if that makes sense). I have had multiple courses of CBT in different areas of the UK and tried different medications but have generally been told I need more specialised help? I was wondering if anyone had any experience/advice of getting help in London, particularly a referral to a specialist unit (in or outpatient)? I think I am in the catchment area for the Maudsley but my community mental health team aren't being very clear with the pathways. Would be interested to hear any thoughts or experiences. Edit; sorry forgot to mention, I've read about referrals but have not found info about being within a catchment area for CADAT/Maudsley makes any difference or if it goes through same process? Thanks very much!
