What are some tips to help navigate a psychiatric diagnosis in the UK?

I'm finding it difficult to maintain the significant momentum needed to seek a diagnostic interview for ADHD in the UK (NHS). I'm not looking for medication, just a meeting with a psychiatrist to see if 'ADHD' is even applicable to me. Is there a magic phrase I should be giving my GP? A map? Brief snowflake-y details inside. [more inside]

Where are the best NHS doctors (GPs) in London?

Hi! We (husband, wife, child) are moving to London soon (more questions on that to come!) One thing that's really important to me is to be in an area that we can register with a really good GP. I've lived in the UK before, and had hit or miss experiences, and don't want this to happen again -- so much so that I want to suss out the great GPs to help make a decision on where we should live. So, who/where are the awesome GPs in London? Or how else would I go about researching this?

How does one become an emergency services/medical dispatcher in London?

I am looking for a new career direction and am curious about UK emergency services/NHS dispatcher jobs. I have found a little bit of information about these sorts of jobs online, but never seen them advertised. Have you ever done this sort of job? Can you point me towards any information? I am particularly looking for information about pathways into this sort of career, and what the work itself is like. (I already know about the sadly defunct Nee Naw blog.) I am based in central London. Thanks!

NHS mental health services for EU Citizen

I'm French and living in the United Kingdom for several months for business. I'm depressed, and would like to see a therapist. I have very little money. I hear there are often long waits here. Can I see someone through through the NHS in the next month? How would I arrange this? Would it make sense to, or should I wait until getting home (at the earliest the end of April)?

Dealing with stress?

If you give me a checklist of signs of serious stress or depression, I can check off pretty much all of them. Constant anxiety, panic attacks, flares of irritation at trivial things, headaches, feeling the overwhelming urge to break down and cry or just snap and yell at someone, exhaustion, lack of sleep, inability to enjoy my time off and alas heavy loss of libido. How do I cope when I can't escape what's causing me stress? [more inside]

What's the NHS smoking cessation program like, and how can I prepare for my first meeting?

I'm going to see the smoking cessation nurse at my local GPs surgery next week (UK). I have a 2 part question about this. Firstly, I'm interested in trying Zyban as an acquaintance said it was really good for them - is this easy to get on the NHS? And secondly, what's the smoking cessation program actually like and is there anything I can do to prepare now (for example, keeping a smoking diary or similar)? I'm fed up with my frequent unsuccessful solo quits and am really serious about making this one stick, so want to go prepared.
