East London Foundation Trust (ELFT) provides specialist CAMHS services in five boroughs; City & Hackney, Tower Hamlets, Newham, Bedfordshire and Luton. Each service offers the same process for the safe consistency in the management of referrals. All referrals are discussed with the young person, their family, and / or the referrer in order for the specialist clinical triage team to gather all relevant information, this helps inform the team to make a detailed clinical decision regarding the most appropriate treatment pathway for your presenting need based on risk to ensure your referral receives the right help at the right time. Once a decision has been made you will receive confirmation from the team to inform you of the outcome of your referral, this may include offering an episode of care within CAMHS or signposting to local services who are better suited to meet your needs. A copy of the clinical decision making will be sent to you and copied to your GP for continuity of care.
If you are making a referral on behalf of a young person, please choose the 'Professional' tab on the right-hand side drop-down menu below.
