rTMS Technicians – Training and Standards

Training and Standards at The Smart Clinics

When thinking about having TMS treatment, it is vital to check the credentials not only of the company, but also the technicians who would be providing the service. 

At Smart TMS in London, all TMS technicians are trained according the most recent Clinical TMS Society Consensus Guidelines (2016).

Standard Operating Procedures

To ensure consistently high standards, the Medical Director has established standard operating procedures (SOPs) related to training and ongoing criteria to maintain procedural skills for all staff involved in the delivery of TMS.

All the staff have to pass a practical examination in the delivery of TMS before being permitted to treat patients.

Dr Leigh Neal says:

“We regularly check competency and feedback to ensure the highest standards of treatment.”


Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a technological breakthrough in the treatment of depression with a variety of further potential treatment applications.

The treatment is now available in London, based at The Smart Clinics Brompton Cross (South Kensington).
