Joint BHR/NELFT Mental Health tertiary funding panel referral process

Please note the joint BHR/NELFT mental health tertiary funding panel process; 

  • Refer all mild to moderate anxiety and depression cases to NELFT IAPT service pathway
  • Refer all medium to high complex cases to NELFT access service pathway 

If you are considering a referral to an alternative provider to NELFT (i.e. SLAM, Psychiatry UK or any specialist centres), please note that the CCG will not be able to support the referral as we (CCG) do not have formal commissioning arrangements with these other providers so would not be able to verify the governance, quality and assurance processes.
