Care Home Referrals for Therapy Services and Dietetics
Care homes no longer need to go through a GP to refer a resident for community physiotherapy, occupational therapy or dietetic advice.
This will be supported by the York Community Therapy Team who are part of the named Multidisciplinary Team available to support local care homes as we move into the recovery phase of the COVID-19 pandemic.
If therapy needs arise, care homes can refer directly using a referral form and contact the Community Therapy Team for support if needed.
Please find referral forms through the below links for:
The teams are also able to offer virtual consultation training through the Attend Anywhere platform, which is available through Google Chrome and be accessed through the tablets allocated to care homes by the CCG.
If you have any queries please contact the respective teams through the contact details on the forms. Please note that exclusion criteria appear on both forms and that referrals can only be made for patients who have a Vale of York GP.
Following discussions, it is now also being asked that homes also send a copy of this form to their GP Practice for information only. This way the practice are made aware as soon as the referral is made.
