The College of Psychiatrists of Ireland is a professional and administrative body and as such cannot provide referrals to a psychiatrist or lists of psychiatrists. As the College is not a regulatory body, it cannot recommend psychiatrists or services, whether public (HSE) or private nor process complaints about services or psychiatrists.

Complaints about a service are handled by the processes of that service. The Medical Council of Ireland handles complaints about doctors registered with the Council; therefore, their process is also for complaints on psychiatrists.

An appointment with a psychiatrist can only be obtained by referral from a general practitioner (GP) or family doctor, or in emergency situations through a local HSE mental health unit.

The best way to reach any member of staff is via email. For general queries, you can email For more specific queries, please check our Full Contact Details section below.
