How to Access the Service

We take referrals from healthcare professionals who are based within either Bedford Hospital or Luton and Dunstable Hospital. If you (or your child) are under the care of one of the medical specialties that we support and you would like to see someone from the psychology service, please speak with your medical team and ask them to make a referral to us.

We have a weekly referrals meeting when we discuss all new referrals. If we decide that we are the most appropriate team to support you, we will offer an appointment soon as one becomes available.

We may ask you to fill in some questionnaires either at or before you come to your first appointment. These help us to understand what is currently feeling difficult, and how we can best support you.

We also work closely with other services and departments, to make sure that families are getting the right kind of support, including Bedfordshire Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service.
