How to make a referral:
You can make a referral by phoning Primary Care Psychotherapy and speaking to our Practice Manager, Jennifer Timmins Rourke or fill out the referral form which Jenny will deal with immediately. Following this initial contact our manager will ensure that your patients’ needs are matched with the most suitable therapist.
Opportunity to consult:
G.P.s are invited to contact Primary Care Psychotherapy by phone or email prior to referral to discuss any potential client issues or concerns. This would help us to ensure we assign the client to the most suitable therapist.
When an appointment for the client has been arranged we will forward you a letter from Primary Care Psychotherapy confirming the name of the therapist whom the client is attending. Once therapy has commenced there may be situations where liaison between the therapist and the G.P. would be beneficial to the client. The nature of this liaison would be discussed with the client either at assessment or during therapy, and upon client consent being granted this would be contracted between the therapist and the client. With the clients consent ongoing communication with the G.P. may be deemed necessary in order to optimize continuity of care.
This may be especially important for example in the following cases:
- If the client has been diagnosed with a psychiatric illness.
- If there is a risk of self-harm, injury or suicide.
