Kingston and Richmond Assessment Team
Who we are
The Kingston and Richmond Assessment Team (KRAT) has changed. In October 2022, KRAT separated to form two new services: the Kingston SPA and Richmond SPA (Single Point of Access). The referral criteria and process for referring patients has not changed.
The Kingston SPA and Richmond SPA manage referrals to secondary mental health services for patients up to the age of 74 living in Kingston and Richmond. Both services screen, triage and carry out initial assessments for patients referred to the Kingston and Richmond Recovery Support Teams, the Kingston and Richmond Early Intervention Service and Adult ADHD Teams.
The development of separate points of access for Kingston and Richmond is part of the Trust’s Community Transformation programme. The overarching purpose of the programme is to make both community and inpatient services work together so that our patients get the right care and support as they need it – find out more about our Community Transformation programme here.

How to make a referral from Primary Care:
GP surgeries should continue to refer Richmond and Kingston residents to their respective SPA via e-RS.
There are two separate e-RS services: Kingston SPA and Richmond SPA.
How to make a referral from other agencies:
For referrals from services other than GPs, we ask that you use the duty inbox for each borough.
