> I'm just wondering where the best place to go for ECT is and are there any recommended treatment regimens, such as what type of anaesthetic to have etc.
> I doubt for one minute my doctor or psychiatrist would ever let me have it but if it ever came to it, where is the best place to go, in the UK and outside of the UK?
I think a better way to put it is where I wouldnt go. Or who I wouldnt use for ECT. I would NOT use a foreign trained, English as a second language psychiatrist for an ECT doctor. I would only use an American trained, English as a first language psychiatrist.
I would also try to get it done at a University teaching hospital, rather than some rinky dink local general hospital. And Id try to have it done outpatient rather than inpatient, cause inpatient sucks.
