Referral Process :
When you first contact us, we will ask for the following details:

• The two most recent CPAs
• Risk assessments
• A written summation of the clients illness
• ADL if one has been done
• Medication Information
• For RCH to be present at the discharge CPA

We will then arrange a formal assessment where we visit the client. We will do at least two visits prior to admission. Should they prove positive, we will invite the client to come and visit us for an afternoon and lastly an overnight visit is arranged once funding is approved.

Referrals outside our 5mile radius
Occasionally client assessments may need to take place outside of our immediate area. We are happy to attend assessments outside our area. Transportation arrangements for RCH will need to be arranged by the Care-co-ordinator or funding body.
