On the 4th of March, the HPHO Primary Mental Health service referral form is changing to using a BPAC referral– this is in addition to the Psychiatrist advice request via BPAC.
You will need to use the BPAC form and select ‘Community Services (HPHO), Adult Primary Mental Health coordination service.’
Can you please ensure that all fields are completed so the team can triage the referral to ensure the best pathway for care is selected. The HPHO team will contact you if they require additional information or if the form is incomplete.
Also please deactivate the current PMH referral HMHR and HMHSRE.
The HPHO Primary Mental Health service is not a crisis service, so please refer any acutely unwell persons directly to the crisis team on 0800 50 50 50.
For queries regarding referrals or referral status please contact the programme support staff on 0800 HAUORA (0800 428 672)
If you require support with BPAC please contact Christine Scott Regional Health Integration Team- HealthShare Ltd p 07 839 1032 Ext 22810, m 0275492020
Please ensure you have ticked the Psychiatrist advice box on the referral if that is the service you are requesting and this will clearly identify your request to Dr Lyndy Matthews and not the HPHO PMH team
