Second Opinion Psychiatry Service

The Cardiff University Psychiatry Service (CUPS) offers second opinion or consultation to patients, with the aim of assisting and advising clinicians and their patients in diagnosis and management.

Requests for a second opinion must be made by the doctor in charge of the care of an individual’s mental health (Psychiatrist or GP). It is not possible to accept self-referrals. There is no charge for this service (either to the patient or the referring NHS Trust).

Dr Ian Jones is happy to see women via this service who have experienced postpartum psychosis or bipolar disorder and require advice regarding treatment or planning further pregnancies.
