A consultant psychiatrist on the GMC specialist register in old age psychiatry Dr Basavaraj has special recognition of his experience in dealing with mental illness in the elderly admitted on medical/surgical wards (liaison old age psychiatry endorsement).
Dr Basavaraj works in Cwm Taf University Health Board in South Wales and teaches/trains junior doctors and medical students from Cardiff University.
He also holds specialist skills in assessment, diagnosis and medication management of dementia, anxiety, depression, phobias and psychotic disorders in the elderly.
Due to the lack of information and taboo associated with mental illness, Dr Basavaraj believes in a collaborative environment, allowing carers sufficient time to ask questions and express concerns during assessments.
Approved under Section 12(2) of the Mental Health Act 1983 as having experience in assessment and management of mental disorders Dr Basavaraj carried out ‘fitness to drive’ assessments in conjunction with a psychologist and makes recommendations to DVLA regarding a person’s fitness to drive post-diagnosis of dementia. He also prepared Court of Protection (COP3) documents enabling patients to identify and formalise a Power of Attorney.
Due to the recently announced lockdown in England, Summerfield Healthcare is currently only able to offer a limited number of clinical services including:
For some services we continue to offer such as health checks and minor surgery we are now providing COVID-19 testing for all patients and Doctors. This is mandatory due to the proximity of the practitioner, the duration of the appointment and multiple clinicians also being involved in your treatment. An additional £10 will be included in the appointment fee at the point of payment to cover the cost of COVID testing, and your booking confirmation will reflect this requirement. This is not required for blood testing due to the short duration of appointments and reduced risk of exposure.
If you cannot find the service you are looking for or it is not available to book due to the lockdown, please enter your details below and the service you require and we will contact you when the service resumes. Please remember that all COVID testing services are continuing during lockdown.
