Electroconvulsive Therapy - Assessment Clinic and Service

As the only provider for electroconvulsive therapy (“ECT”) in the region, assessments are provided for appropriateness of patients for referral for electroconvulsive therapy. These cases are usually expected to remain with their current outpatient psychiatrist, and are seen in consultation prior to referral for ECT, which is provided through Marshall Psychiatry at St. Mary’s hospital. Referring physicians are asked to send full psychiatric and medical records to the clinic prior to the patient being seen.
