Community paediatrics referrals

Who can refer

We take referrals from GPs, community nurses, schools, therapists, social services and parents of children known to us.

Making a referral

  • the child would usually be resident, attend school or be registered with a GP in Lambeth or Southwark
  • the child must be age 0-18 years
  • the concerns must be relevant to the services provided by our community paediatricians - see the overview page for details. 

Each referral is evaluated on an individual basis as the child may be best seen by a team in another borough (for example to support education placement or home visits). We will let the referrer know as soon as possible if this is the case.

Additionally, referrals to our service are discussed in a multidisciplinary way and will be allocated to the most appropriate professional within the team, for example a speech and language therapist or nurse.
