FREE Safety Screening
Your safety screening is completely free of charge. If your patient advisor flags any issues that may mean you’re unsuitable to receive TMS treatment, they will discuss with your clinician beforehand to make sure you’re not paying for an initial consultation unnecessarily.
Before you have a consultation with one of our clinicians, we’ll ask you to complete some online questionnaires. These will allow your care team to have a good insight into your medical history and how you’re feeling now. Your patient advisor will use these forms to ensure you’re safe to receive treatment – they’ll check that you don’t have any ferromagnetic metal implants in your head, for example.
Your patient advisor will assist you in booking an appointment with one of our clinicians, who will talk to you about your condition and prescribe your TMS treatment. The cost of this consultation will be deducted from your first course of treatment.

Depression and anxiety
At Smart TMS, we recognise that a large percentage of our patients suffer from depression and anxiety alongside one another. For this reason, we treat these two conditions together within the same session.
TMS treatment for depression and anxiety is split into two courses. After 15 sessions, the results of the treatment are very apparent for most patients. If you’re one of the 30% of patients who don’t respond to TMS, and you’re not seeing any benefits by this point, your clinician may be able to suggest an alternative treatment programme or treatment can be stopped.

Most of the patients we treat for depression go into remission after two courses of treatment (30 sessions).

TMS Treatment Costs/Prices
The cost of treatment will depend on the condition being treated as this determines how many sessions are required.
There are very few NHS clinics offering TMS treatment and those who do offer it tend to have strict catchment areas, long waiting lists and specific condition criteria. If you would like TMS on the NHS, we recommend you speak to your GP in the first instance.
See NHS Funding for more information.
At present (Jan ’20), most insurers will consider claims for TMS on a case by case basis. Details of which companies cover TMS are shown here Private Health Insurance.
When paying for depression treatment, we're able to offer a payment plan. This will see the cost of the second course of 15 sessions spread over 12 months. For more information visit our Payment Plan page. We would never charge you for treatment that isn’t needed/recommended.
Most people are suitable to receive TMS treatment. Try our quick 2 minute questionnaire to see whether TMS treatment could help. TMS Suitability Self-Check
Before you can start treatment, there are two stages that need to be completed:
- Completion of your pre-assessment questionnaire. This gives us the information we need on your medical history and symptoms before your assessment with one of our clinicians;
- Our clinician will talk through your medical history and symptoms before arriving at a diagnosis and confirming your suitability for TMS treatment. A prescription for TMS will be written.
To arrange to start this process, please contact us on 0345 222 5678 or submit an enquiry and one of our patient advisors will contact you.
