If you feel that you need extra help and would like to access our services, you will need to be referred.

You can speak to your GP to ask for a referral or call our community nurse specialist team who will speak to your GP directly for you and discuss the appropriateness of a referral. Our team works closely with GPs which means referrals can be quick and efficient. We'll contact you as soon as the referral has been made and talk to you about your wishes and needs so we can support you to receive the care you need.

Referrals can be made from the following people:

  • GPs, community matrons, district nurses
  • Hospital teams, with the agreement of the consultant in charge
  • Allied health and social care professionals
  • The patient or family

Please note that in all cases the patient needs to agree to the referral and there needs to be agreement from the GP or hospital consultant before we can contact you directly.
