Referrals

Referral are made via GPs and health and social care professionals. Self referrals can be made by patients and clients.

Referral form:
Email: nelft.BDreferrals@nhs.net
Referral criteria: People aged 16 and over registered with a GP; people who have a specific nursing need.

Referrals will only be accepted if the patient is housebound; for example, if they are only able to leave home by ambulance, or there is a nursing need that makes a home visit more appropriate such as palliative care.
