Who to refer

You can refer patients for the following reasons:

  • Psychiatric assessments for inpatients and outpatients.
  • Patients where a second opinion on Mental Capacity is needed or who require a routine application for Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (An initial assessment on capacity should always be performed by the primary decision maker. This will be the team for medical decisions or a social worker / CDT for decisions regarding social care. If it is still not clear whether the patient has capacity, please refer to psycho oncology for a second opinion)
  • Counselling
  • Cognitive behavioural therapy
  • Psycho-sexual counselling
  • Clinical Psychology
  • Psycho-Oncology and dementia

We do not accept referrals for Christie clinic patients.

We also do not accept GP referrals directly into our team.
