Q. MHCP initial 6 of the 10 sessions, is there a waiting period to access the additional 4 sessions?
A. All MHCP’s provide a patient with 10 sessions per calendar year. The GP approves the initial 6 sessions and then reviews progress in order to provide approval for the remaining 4 sessions. There is sometimes a delay during the review process depending on how quickly the GP approves the ongoing counselling but there is no set period of delay and most GPs are efficient at ensuring the continuity of treatment.
