How do I make a referral?
Step 1. Assess your client’s readiness to change.

Step 2. Find the right service
Use the programme overview to find the service that is best suited to your client.
If you consider a person is not ready or willing to engage with a lifestyle change service you can refer them for wellbeing support or continue to offer them advice, guidance and monitoring in primary care.
Step 3. For Community Weight Management and Stop Smoking Support
- Signpost the patient to self-refer by completing our online self-referral tool. We can provide you with a range of cards, leaflets and posters with our web address details for you to give out to signpost patients to self refer; just contact us to find out more and request some.
- If you would like to refer the patient yourself you can do this by completing our GP referral form.
Step 3. For Wellbeing Support *, Specialist Weight Management and Health Referral
Please download and complete a GP referral form. Please complete and attach all relevant information to allow us to prepare and plan for engaging with your patient. (*for wellbeing service we can also accept a referral from other health and social care agencies).
Please print off and sign your referral and return by post, or download, complete and return as an attachment from your secure e-mail account to our secure e-mail account.
