Heywood Middleton and Rochdale Secondary Care Psychological Therapies

We accept referrals for people with moderate to severe mental health problems who are currently in receipt of secondary care services (e.g. psychiatry, community mental health team).

Referrals are by Psychiatrist or Care Co-ordinator. Ward-based staff may also refer via the Care Co-ordinator.

GPs can refer via the Access Team. They decide which part/s of the secondary care service the service user will be referred to.

Service users referred to the team usually receive an assessment and psychological formulation of their problems.

This may lead to therapy or an intervention to help other services work with the service user in a psychologically informed way.
