Unfortunately, we are not able to accept referrals directly from the public.

If you are worried about your mental health or your partners mental health and how this is impacting them during the Perinatal Period, please discuss your concerns with your GP, Health Visitor or midwife who can refer on your behalf.

All referrals must be made by a healthcare professional. We are able to accept direct referrals from professionals including midwives, health visitors, FNP nurses and other mental health professionals. However, we ask that you call to speak with a member of the team to discuss your referral before sending the referral form through.

Please note, our referral time frames may differ from the Adult Mental Health Teams and are as follows:

  • Routine – within 10 days
  • Urgent – 2 working days
  • Emergency/Crisis – 4 hours

GPs can refer directly to the Oxon Perinatal Service via ERS.
