How to refer
We accept referrals from GP and nurse practitioners via the choose and book system for children under the age of 18 years.
We provide a consultant led telephone triage service between 9am and 6pm five days per week.
This service is available to primary care colleagues who are concerned a child may need a same day or urgent review.
We can also provide phone advice about more long term problems.
Advice and guidance
We offer written advice and guidance to primary care colleagues via NHS choose and book system.
This is more suitable for less urgent problems and queries.
