rTMS is approved by The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) for the treatment of depression in adults. rTMS is a safe treatment, with low risk of side effects. rTMS is a safer intervention and has lower risk of side effects than many other anti-depression treatments. According to NICE, adverse effects are in the region of 1 in 1,000 and the risk of seizures is 1 in 30,000 treatments.
Adverse effects are generally minor – for example scalp pain, headache and a burning sensation which can appear during or after treatment but doesn’t last long. However, like any medical intervention, there are some people for whom rTMS is not suitable. All prospective rTMS clients are assessed thoroughly by our Consultant Psychiatrist.
Newcastle Premier Health provide rTMS in partnership with The London Psychiatry Centre (TLPC).
TLPC is recognised by the Care Quality Commission as a leading mental health service provider, contributing to the advancement of mental health care and life changing treatments through the provision of rTMS is the UK.
