About Us

Our Work

We specialise in working with the Mental Health (Care and Treatment) (Scotland) Act 2003 and the Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Act 2000, and have experts that provide psychiatric opinions for Courts and Tribunals. We also provide medico legal reports, reports for capacity assessment, risk assessment (e.g HCR20), suicide risk assessment, benefit appeals, immigration applications, parental right appeals, the DVLA, action for eviction, personal injury and employment tribunals amongst others. Our psychiatrists regularly assess fitness for trial, criminal responsibility, diminished responsibility, vulnerable witnesses and have expert witness experience. For a full list of our services, read more here.

For individuals (GP referrals only), we are able to offer psychiatric assessment, diagnosis, and advice and treatment, including advice on prognosis.  We are also able to carry out Aspergers and Autism (e.g DISCO) diagnostic assessments. Read more here.

Louise Melia, Melia Legal
A highly professional and discrete service that hits the mark at every level. The consulting psychiatrist was very approachable, understanding and questioned with a level of fine detail that I have not experienced before. The written reports were of a very high standard and this has been commented on by other health professionals. I acted on the advice provided and I achieved good results. I would have no hesitation in recommending this service to others. On a financial level, the service provided very good value for money.

As a criminal defense solicitor working within a busy office it’s important that I can rely on a professional and efficient service. Thankfully, that is exactly the level of service I get week in, week out from Independent Psychiatry. I would thoroughly commend their proactive approach and friendly manner when dealing with my clients cases.
