Referrals from Health Services

Referrals are made by the Tier 3 CAMHS community clinics and are required to be endorsed by the CAMHS consultant. An initial discussion takes place with the Hope Service Health Lead and if the criteria for a referral are met then a formal referral is completed.

The aim of the referral is to prevent a Tier 4 hospital admission by offering either intensive community outreach or our Therapeutic Day Programme, or both. In the event that an admission to hospital is unavoidable, the nursing team will maintain close links with the hospital to ensure a timely length of stay.
