    I'm not sure if it is the same number for the out of hours doctors. I had a problem with my medication and apart from saying if your symptoms worsen then contact us they were of no help at all!! The Maudesley hospital used to have an emergency out of hours psychiatric drug line ie for queries relating to psychiatric drugs. Sadly this does not exist anymore.

    There are some really good links on the Maudesley Hospital site. I might use them in the future.
