Dr John Ferguson
Consultant Adult Psychiatrist
MRCPsych, MB ChB, BSc (Med Sci)
I have worked as an NHS Consultant Adult Psychiatrist in East Lothian and at The Royal Edinburgh Hospital since 2009. I believe passionately that mood and anxiety disorders are treatable and complete resolution of symptoms is my goal for patients under my care.
Whilst my main expertise is prescribing medication to treat these illnesses, I am also careful to think holistically about each individual and to tailor their treatment plan accordingly. I have a particular clinical interest in Bipolar Spectrum Disorders. I have previously worked at a specialist diagnostic service for adults with Autistic Spectrum Disorders.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr John Ferguson at Spire include:
Spire Edinburgh Hospitals Murrayfield and Shawfair Park is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
