We aim to assess within 48 hours of the referral being received in writing.
A comprehensive assessment is undertaken including nursing, clinical psychology and psychiatry.
Following the initial assessment and discussion with the Multi-Disciplinary Panel, a decision will be communicated immediately to the referring professional.
Detailed assessment reports, including treatment recommendations and care pathways for each individual referral are provided by Commissioners within seven days.
All new referrals are discussed weekly by the Multi-Disciplinary Referral Panel, focusing on identifying need, risk assessment and patient compatibility.
In exceptional circumstances, assessments may be undertaken as a matter of urgency.
Referrals can be made to our Referral Co-ordinator on 02920 394410 or alternatively complete our online Referral Form
