How to get an appointment

You can ask your GP for a referral to the team or self-refer by completing a health check online. The Health Check asks about your child's health condition, their general wellbeing, and some family background information. It takes about 10 minutes to complete.

Complete the health check online.

After you complete the health check we'll send you a health support pack by email. The health support pack contains practical information about how you can support your child to manage their health condition. You can also download the health support packs:

The health check is hosted on a secure platform called REDCap. More information about how our Trust manages health information, including work with partner organisations, can be found on the Guy’s and St Thomas’ website.
