Get access to this service
Anyone involved in a child’s health or education can make a referral to our service, as long the parents of the child have given their consent.
If you’re concerned about your child, you can speak to your GP, health visitor, school nurse or other health professional about making a referral.
When making a referral, we ask for detailed information because it helps us to process your child’s case more efficiently. We will ask for personal details like date of birth and contact information, as well as information about the problem and any information about how this has been treated in the past.
