About the Advanced Interventions Service

The Dundee Advanced Interventions Service is a specialist service providing: intensive treatment for OCD; specialist assessment and treatment for treatment-refractory depression (TRD) and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD); and neurosurgical treatment for mental disorder.

We are a National Specialist Service, which means that we are one of over 80 national services in Scotland, receiving funding directly from the National Services Division (NSD) of NHS Scotland. Referral, assessment, and treatment are cost-free to NHS Boards in Scotland. This works because monies for specialist services are 'top sliced' from money given to NHS Boards by the Scottish Government.

The service is 'hosted' by NHS Tayside and is based at Ninewells Hospital & Medical School in Dundee.
