Assessment and referral service (CARS)

Our assessment and referral service provides and advice and support for GPs.

The service is delivered by a consultant paediatrician and provides advice by phone and email as well as a rapid access outpatient review facility.

Advice service

  • Tel: 07557 159 092, Monday-Friday, 11am-7pm
  • Email: general.paediatrics@nhs.net (we aim to get back to emails within 24 hours, Monday-Friday).

Our consultant is on hand to take calls from GPs, answer queries about potential referrals to outpatients or acute referrals, or give advice about the management of the patient within primary care services.

Rapid access outpatient review

Our rapid access outpatient facility is for children who would benefit from a prompt paediatric assessment, but who do not need to urgently visit A&E.

When referred to this service, children will be seen by a paediatrician on the same or next working day where possible.

To refer a child to the rapid access outpatient review service, call 07557 159 092.
