How to organise a referral?
To organise a referral you can call 01642 061047 then choose option 5 or email this form > Footsteps referral form to Footsteps
Our referrals are from any Stockton on Tees postcode, despite this we would NOT turn a young person away.
You can access the service yourself or if it is felt to be more appropriate a referral form can be completed by another professional. This could be:
• Your own GP
• Your school
• A youth worker
• A social worker
• A CAMHS practitioner
• A paediatrician
Open Access Service
Although we offer an informal open access service we are keen to ensure that the young people who present are appropriate for our service.
The following are not suitable for us:
Young people who require urgent care
Please contact 111/ A+E / urgent care centre North Tees Hospital
Those who are a risk to themselves or others
CRISIS TEAM – 0800 051 6171 option 3 then option 1 in an emergency.
