Professional Referral for Worcestershire Healthy Minds Service
Worcestershire GP's are now able to use the e-referral service to make appointments for patients requiring IAPT Services/Healthy Minds Services.
GPs can now complete the referral with the patient, allowing the patient to leave the practice with the date and time of their appointment, and you can handover care for the patient to Worcestershire Health & Care NHS Trust, which runs the Healthy Minds service. Patients will be booked into a telephone assessment appointment and are not required to attend a clinic for this assessment.
As per other services currently available on e-Referral, patients can book their appointment whilst with you, or alternatively they can be given the central booking line number and phone to book at their convenience.
We believe this is a positive addition to e-Referral bookable services, and that you and your patients will benefit from this access. It’s a much better system that will allow patients to access services much quicker.
