What you can expect
People who use our services first get an assessment of their mental health needs and a plan of the care and support they will receive. They will also will also have one named person who co-ordinates their care and support. This person will be called either a named professional or, if your needs are more complex, a care co-ordinator. This person should be your main point of contact and you can speak to them about how your treatment and support are going. If you come to hospital we will make sure you are given information about your rights and that you are only in hospital for as long as you need. When you arrive you will be given a welcome pack which will give you and your family all the information you need to know - like the visiting times and phone numbers.
The main referral routes into the service are via written referrals by professionals (GPs, schools) to local Single Points of Access (SPA) services now present in all five boroughs, or sent directly to our service.
