Hertfordshire Obsessive Compulsive Disorders (OCDs) Service

Specialist Hospital/Clinic | Welwyn Garden City, United Kingdom

Hospital description

HPFT Highly Specialized Services for Obsessive Compulsive Disorders (OCDs) and Applied Neuroscience is one of four NHS England Commissioned services providing care and treatment to people who have failed to respond to all available pharmacological and psychological treatments whilst under the care of their local NHS Mental Health Trust. Patients are referred nationally from any NHS Trust in England and cover a wide geographical spread. We also work collaboratively with colleagues in primary, community and acute mental health services.

The Hertfordshire Obsessive Compulsive Disorders (OCDs) Service is a county-wide service based in Welwyn Garden City providing expert consultation, advice and care in collaboration with the local community mental health or primary healthcare services for people with OCDs in Hertfordshire.

We provide person-centred treatment/care, both in the outpatient clinic and/or in an inpatient care setting, delivered to the highest standard. We use research-enhanced treatment, including off-label and approved pharmacological agents. Psychological interventions include Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) with Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP). Various other psychological interventions are utilised to help enhance treatment response. Given the cognitive inflexibility and rigidity often experienced by our service-user group, which at times impacts treatment progress, we are constantly exploring new pharmacological and psychological approaches to improve flexibility and outcomes on an individualized basis.
