What happens when a new referral is received?

When a referral is received it will be triaged by a physiotherapist and prioritised.

Once the referral is accepted a letter will be posted to parents/carers to invite them to opt in to our service within 10 days.

If parents/carers do not respond to the opt-in then the child will be discharged from the service in line with Bridgewater policy.

If the referral has been declined a letter will be sent to the referrer to inform them of this decision.

We aim to make contact with families in a timely manner and all children accepted into our service are entitled to be seen within 18 weeks.
