WHO WE ARE
At DHC we aim to provide quality healthcare for people throughout Surrey.
Who we are
DHC Ltd it an organisation formed in 2005 by local GPs with the aim of providing high quality, local and timely care. We initially provided counselling to the population of Dorking but since then the service has continued to grow and our psychological therapists are now based in a variety of community and primary care sites throughout Surrey.
In 2016/17 we expanded our IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) Services to new areas in the Guildford and Waverly locality as well as growing our services in Surrey Downs and East Surrey. The following year (2017/2018) we expanded into North West Surrey and in 2018/2019 are providing services in the Surrey Health locality. We have consistently maintained quality and short waiting times during this period of growth.
We have adopted the term ‘Talking Therapies’ to increase uptake and reduce the stigma that is sometimes associated with emotional health problems. Self-referrals are now well established with a variety of methods of access available to people.
We also offer dedicated outpatient consultant appointments throughout Surrey and Sussex (DHC Clinical). We are an accredited AQP (Any Qualified Provider) and CQC (Care Quality Commission) registered organisation.
All our activity is provided under a standard NHS contract with all the Surrey CCGs.
