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. 


Email address for referrals:

Referrals can be made to the service for the following:

  1. Management at our in-patient units - Phoenix or hospital hostels (not the supported houses we manage, and also please note that we do not have a CPN service)
  2. You need to bring a case through us before applying for funding e.g. social care and PCT placements.
  3. Advice about management e.g. medication  (in which case, we would want a medication/treatment history completed prior to referral)
  4. We would also expect that the referral to Rehab has been discussed by the referrer with the Service User and their Carer(s).

We also expect the Rio Core-assessment / ongoing sections completed so that we know the medical and social background of the individual. A functional ADL assessment, updated risk assessment and care plans should be available.

Once your team has decided to make a referral please send the referral letter (password protected) via the Wandsworth Rehab Referrals email address. We will try to deal with your referral as quickly as possible.
