Primary Care Mental Health Team
This page has been created for GPs and their staff - on it you will find referral information and questions and answers that have been raised by practices.
Request for service reminder:
The Request for Service form contains an additional question around consent. We are asking the patient whether they consent to having an SMS message sent to them confirming their appointment. If this consent is not given, then the patient will be contacted by an alternative method such as a telephone call or e-mail. GPs should gain and tick the consent box on this form. If this box is not ticked, we will be unable to see or contact the patient. Please could you also ensure you gain consent from your patient if you wish to discuss their case with the Primary Care Mental Health Service team outside of MDT meetings.
All of the GP bi-monthly updates are available to view in the "bookshelf" at the bottom of this page.
As a patient, relative or carer using our services, sometimes you may need to turn to someone for help, advice, and support.
