Refer a patient
You can refer to many of our services using our online forms either by selecting a letter below or using the search box:-
We also have a dedicated referral line which can also be used to refer to some of our services:-
MCH OneCall means that GPs, practice nurses, social care and hospital teams can now simply call one number to refer patients who need support from our community nursing, rehabilitation, therapy, respiratory, diabetes, cardiology, phlebotomy service or medication.
The MCH OneCall team can be contacted on 01634 891900
The MCH OneCall team will need the following information to process a referral:-
- Patient demographics (including GP surgery)
- A contact name and number for the referrer
- The reason for the referral
- Any other relevant medical/social history
- Any special notes (including access to patient’s home if restricted, next of kin if needed etc)
Using MCH OneCall means that a referral form is no longer needed. Details of the patient will be recorded and transferred to the appropriate service for clinical triage – helping to simplify referrals and ensure that the patient receives the right care at the right time. MCH OneCall gives you an additional option for referrals and does not replace existing contact arrangements you may already have in place should you prefer to use them.
