The Core Study



Department of Health, Mental Health Implementation Policy Guide (2001)

The CRT accepts referrals from all sources

Referral to the service should be easy and pathways of care clear to all involved. The service should have a system in place that allows direct referrals from primary care, community mental health teams, ASWs, staff on inpatient wards, the criminal justice system, non-statutory agencies, former service users and their family/carers, A+E departments and other parts of the acute medical service.
