What your practice can do
Training and Engagement
Top Tips for Referrals
We are planning on developing a second tier of training that will enhance the skills and knowledge base that you will have gained from your initial training.
This will be a further 1 or 2 hours.
Please can you contact us to arrange this.

There are a few things that we would like to bring to your attention.
Firstly, we would be grateful if you would:
Avoid providing our telephone number for patients to contact us, i.e, promoting self referrals.
as a practice, as patients, generally, do not self refer.
This could be due to potential chaotic life, anxiety, fear, thinking that they aren't being abused, "someone else is worse off than me", embarrassment, shame, etc.
not always safe
to provide our number.
People who abuse often check phones, monitor calls, patient may not have credit to call us, etc.
Get consent and refer whilst patient is still with you
Or refer ideally within 24 hours of seeing patient.
Secondly when referring you can either:
Email referrals securely
via CJSM to BOTH of us
Or call us and we will take a telephone referral - 01204 365 677
