General Practitioners

General Practitioners are encouraged to visit the Clinic and develop close working practices. We welcome feedback from general practitioners on the type of service that is most useful to their patients and Dr Howells and colleagues are pleased to give telephone advice on possible referrals or on clinical management issues.


The Sloane Court Clinic is a private psychiatric clinic offering psychiatric and psychological care to adults from pleasant contemporary premises close to Sloane Square.

The Clinic does not have inpatient beds but can broker these when they are required – typically from the Capio Nightingale or Priory Hospitals.

The emphasis of the approach we take to caring for our patients is to provide a convenient, comfortable and friendly service to your patients using mainstream evidence-based psychiatric and psychological methods. We place equal emphasis on physical and psychological treatments, always carefully assessing a patient before considering psychological or pharmacological treatment, or an admixture of the two.

Close liaison with primary care physicians is an important aspect of patient management. We write regularly with clinical updates, and where appropriate liaise by phone. Dr Howells and colleagues are almost always available to discuss a case on the telephone and where possible are pleased to give advice.

Urgent referrals can generally be seen. We routinely offer early morning and evening appointments, and try to accommodate patient’s particular needs – for example we can provide a series of appointments in a week if a patient is coming from abroad, or can provide privacy to those that might require it, or make other arrangements to make the service more helpful.

It should be noted we do not have wheelchair access and there is a short flight of steps to the clinic entrance.

The range of conditions treated includes the bulk of adult and old age psychiatry. We are not specialists in eating disorders or drug addiction; though manage drug addiction routinely when it presents as a “dual diagnosis”. We now assess and treat adult ADHD and ADD, as well as autistic spectrum disorders.
