Access and Crisis Team

We act as the single point of access for all referrals into mental health services, including primary care mental health services and older people's mental health services.

We screen and triage referrals throughout the day.

Once we have received the referral we can:

  • Direct your referral to the relevant service
  • Provide a comprehensive assessment for urgent or priority referrals
  • Provide follow up interventions

Our Bury access team has 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.
