What happens when you refer yourself to us?

  1. Once we receive a referral, we consider the information you have provided and whether we want to get further information from your GP, and a member of our team will call you within 3-5 working days to arrange a time to find out more information from you.
  2. If it looks like our service may be a good fit for you we will arrange a telephone assessment, this will last about half an hour.
  3. The assessment includes a series of standard questions, where we try to find out about the difficulties you are having and what help you are looking for. Don’t worry if you know what you are looking for, we will be thinking about this with you.
  4. Afterwards, we discuss your wishes and needs within our service to further decide on what and who might be best able to help. While this is likely to be our team, we also will consider other services too.
  5. Then we will call you to discuss our recommendation and to check that this fits for you.

During this process we will share information with your GP or other relevant health professionals to help gain a fuller picture of your difficulties and to manage any concerns we may have about risk or safety. This is usual practice within NHS and health care.

So, if you think that we might be able to help and you are registered with a GP in Tower Hamlets, why not book in to see your GP, or click on the link below where you will be directed to a secure form.

Referral via your GP

Alternatively, you can go along to your GP and explain the difficulties that you are having. Have a think with them about whether a referral to us might be beneficial. (It may be that there is a another, more appropriate service for you to get some help.) Your GP will then be able to refer you directly to us and if required share some information with us to help us get a better idea of your relevant difficulties and background
