How to refer into our services

LCHS provides care for patients who require clinical input from either planned or urgent care services coordinated by the Operations Centre. Planned care is provided by our community nursing, therapy teams and specialist services in the patients home, community hospitals or in care home beds. Urgent care is provided via our Clinical Assessment Service supported by teams in our urgent care bases and by urgent care home visiting practitioners by dialling 111.

To our access our services referrals are made to the Operations Centre by social and health care professionals and for a small number of services self-referrals are also accepted.

If you require access to one of our services where self-referral is not an option please contact your GP to discuss your requirements.
