The service accepts referrals from the following:
- Paediatricians / consultants
- Nursery managers
- Social care professionals
- Other allied health care professionals (e.g. physiotherapists, speech and language therapists, psychologists).
All referrals are triaged by a senior occupational therapist on a regular basis. The referrer will be notified of the outcome. We aim to see all children within 18 weeks of the referral. Areas of need identified must relate to functional goals and they may relate to a variety of settings including home and school.
To ensure that triage can be completed appropriately and in a timely manner, please provide as much information as possible on the referral form. Please note we do not accept referrals where the form has not been completed.
