How do I get referred?

Self referral by telephone

You can refer yourself by phoning our self referral number 0300 123 6020. You will need your NHS number handy together with your name and address details. The receptionist will take your details and will offer you an appointment for a telephone assessment with one of our qualified therapists, who can talk through the various treatments on offer with you. Although there is high demand for our services, we aim to offer you an appointment as soon as possible, within 2-4 weeks as an estimate.

Self referral by email

You can download a referral form here. Once you have completed it, you will need to email it to us at iaptshropshire@nhs.net where it will be dealt with as soon as possible. You will receive a return email to acknowledge your referral and to invite you to call us to make an appointment for a telephone assessment with one of our qualified therapists who can talk through the various treatments on offer with you.

Via your GP

You can visit your GP or other healthcare professional to discuss your needs and they can then support you with a referral to us. When we receive your referral we will write to you to let you know we have received your referral and ask you to contact us to make an appointment for a telephone assessment with one of our qualified therapists who can talk through the various treatments on offer with you.
