How to refer
Please download and complete a referral form:
Who can refer
- any professional or agency that has carried out an assessment of the child and is in a position to provide sufficient information to meet the referral criteria
- parents / carers can self-refer if they have previously been known to the service.
The child must be registered with a GP in Southwark or Lambeth.
For children who do not have a Southwark or Lambeth GP, but attend a Southwark or Lambeth local authority school: the child should be referred to their local occupational therapy (OT) service (where their GP is) for assessment. Following this assessment, we may provide a limited service to strategies identified into the child’s school
Should the child be registered with a Southwark or Lambeth GP, but attend school out of borough, we will provide the initial assessment (clinic-based), strategies and advice for school and input into the home or treatment at our clinic only. We will not provide direct input into school.
Should the child’s home needs be purely equipment or home adaptations, they should be referred to the relevant social services occupational therapy team.
Age: 0-16 years (16-19 years if still in full time education).
