The key objectives of the Single Referral Pathway are:
These services include:
By working in partnership we can share information and resources to provide co-ordinated mental health services to meet the needs of people in Clackmannanshire.
The Single Referral Pathway ensures that all mental health referrals are directed to one point. This means that a decision can be made quickly to make sure the person being referred goes directly to the correct team. As a result of working together we are able to avoid duplication, provide a wider choice and see people quicker.
Referrals are processed through the Single Referral Pathway as follows:
If you feel someone would benefit from these teams, a referral can be made by a GP, Social Worker or other mental health professional that the individual is in contact with.
Referrals from GPs can be made through the Electronic Referral System. All other referrals can be made via our Single Referral Pathway by completing our standard Referral Form and sending it to:
Once a referral is allocated to a team, the individual will be contacted to attend an appointment to carry out an assessment of needs, discuss options available and agree the best way forward.
A performance management system is in place which monitors all aspects of care, ensuring standards are maintained and improved where possible.
Performance reports, alongside the views of service users and partners inform managers when there is a need to change.
Some of the results from Single Referral Pathway monitoring can be found in the Performance section of our Annual Reports.
