Referral info for GPs:

You can refer patients to our service through the e-referral NHS platform. However, some services might provide their own referral form (Word documents) listed further down this page and also available on their dedicated page. Alternatively, services such as Steps2Wellbeing, might accept self-referral by phone or by filling online forms.
