Access and Crisis Team

We act as the single point of access for all referrals into mental health services.

We screen and triage referrals throughout the day.

Once we have received your referral, we can:

  • Direct your referral to the relevant service
  • Provide a comprehensive mental health assessment
  • Provide short-term follow-up interventions

We aim to see you within 14 days of receiving your referrals. If your referral is urgent, please contact the team on 0161 716 1080 to discuss your situation with our duty worker, as we may be able to offer an appointment quicker than this.

We have also developed the 'consultant access' service to provide GPs with quick access to consultant psychiatrist advice and rapid feedback for patients in primary care (Bury).

We will make sure we get your consent to engage with our service.
