Once the programme ends there is a graduation from the programme for children and families who have completed the programme and then a follow up contact to see how they are doing. If a child is still struggling with an issue they would be referred on for further help.
The team at Central London Community Healthcare NHS Trust (CLCH) treat a number of conditions such as in growing toenails to foot ulcers. All ages are treated; however, assessments will be made on a clinical needs basis. Referrals are accepted from Health care professionals and Carers. The community podiatry service is now accepting self-referrals, however if it is an emergency the patient should still attend their local walk in centres/A&E/ or call 111.
The falls service provided by Central London Community Healthcare NHS Trust (CLCH) works in the community to support people at risk of falls. The service provides an assessment, advice and exercise. The service is provided for those who are aged over 65. Referrals to the service are accepted from health care professionals and cares. The service now also accepts self-referrals. Providing the patient meets the criteria for self-referral they will be able to access the service directly.
All self-referral forms should be sent to [email protected]
With regard to the discharge process, the team review outcome measures on the last session, they then complete a discharge summary on EMIS and discharge the patient from the EMIS caseload.
Patients can self-refer into the service provided by AJM, or be referred by a qualified healthcare professional, who will send you a letter or call you to let you know you are eligible for a wheelchair assessment.
A wheelchair assessment establishes your clinical needs and a prescription is made for the right wheelchair for you.
Your assessment will take place at one of our wheelchair clinics in Park Royal, Wembley, Barnet or at St. Charles Hospital in West London or another appropriate location, i.e. school or health care setting. Home assessments can be undertaken only in certain circumstances. This will be agreed after triage by the clinical team.
