What you can expect

Anyone who uses our services first gets 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.  You can speak to them about how your treatment and support are going.

Referrals

The MST Team accepts referrals from Merton, Sutton, Wandsworth, Kingston and Richmond on a spot purchase basis.

Completed MST referral form should be emailed to the MST Team. ssg-tr.mstreferral@nhs.net

MST blank referral form can be requested from: ssg-tr.mstreferral@nhs.net

One of the MST Supervisors will then arrange to meet the family to do a suitability assessment for MST.  following that assessment, the MST Supervisor will provide feedback to the referrer. If the referral meets criteria for MST, referrers will need to get written approval for funding from either the CCG commissioner or the relevant Social Care management team.

Discussion with the MST Supervisor aroung potential referrals are very welcome.
