The psychology department provides services to inpatients, and to some outpatient groups from specialist clinics (diabetes, neurology, cardiology, child epilepsy and pain management clinic).

Clinical psychologists and neuro-psychologists provide assessments, diagnosis and treatment to patients suffering psychological impairments that may be associated with health problems.
