If an assessment in the CMHC is being considered, an initial review by the family GP/ medical doctor should take place to ensure that a specialist referral is likely to be useful. Please send the referral by fax or post to the CMHC.

Both (where applicable) parents/guardians must consent to assessment/treatment. Consent forms for the initial assessment will be sent with the appointment letter and should be returned in advance of the appointment.
