What you can expect
Following screening of the received referral, we will initially offer a mental health assessment via telephone, video or face to face. During this assessment, we will discuss the goals the young person would like to work towards and will make recommendations based on their goals and our mental health assessment. This is followed up by a care plan letter which is shared with the young person’s GP.

*From May 2022 the e-RS route will be the only way for GP Practices to send in referrals. This means that all first outpatient referrals must come into our Trust via the Electronic Referral Service (e-RS).
Professional referrals are made via the CAMHS Single Point of Access (SPA) by using the E-Referrals System (GP’s only) or by completing the referral form and sending it to MertonSPAreferrals@swlstg.nhs.uk. Professional referrals are accepted by GP’s, schools, and other healthcare professionals.
Referrals that do not use our referral form will be rejected.
We currently accept self-referrals for 16 and 17 years olds via our self-referral form
