How to make a referral
Referrals should be made using the CYP Learning disability referral form which can be emailed to: bfwh.cypld@nhs.net

Referrals must be made with the knowledge and consent of the person(s) with parental responsibility for the child or young person. The service does not accept self-referrals. The child or young person being referred must have evidence of a moderate or severe Learning Disability and a GP within the Blackpool area. There will also be evidence of targeted interventions and reasonable adjustments in care prior to the referral being made. We do not work with specific learning difficulties or presentation relating mainly to Autism and ADHD.

All referrals go through our duty system which operating 9-4:30pm each day. If accepted, the team will contact the families to discuss the process and start to gather further information about the child or young person prior to their support with the team so we can establish the most appropriate pathway of care.
