You can now see or speak to a mental health practictioner to get a more detailed assessment of any NEW mental health issues rather than see a GP.
Our First Contact Mental Health Practitioner, Michelle Gideon, will offer you an in-depth assessment and initial support as well as refer you on to local services for longer term treatment. They can also liaise with the GP about starting any medication without you needing to speak to them.
To be referred to Michelle please submit a request via Accurx as normal and ask for the First Contact Mental Health worker. If on reviewing your request our team think that the First Contact Mental Health worker would be the best option for you then they will arrange this.
