Note

“All our TMS technicians are trained according the most recent Clinical TMS Society Consensus Guidelines (2016). 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. We regularly check competency and feedback to ensure the highest standards of treatment”.
