Specialist forensic outreach team
Referrals accepted from
Secure mental health services
The service is commissioned to provide specialist outreach for service users discharged from secure mental health services into the community and to provide advice and act as a consultation service to reduce the need for admission to secure services.
Referrals are made from consultant to consultant in writing and are discussed at the team’s referral meeting on Mondays. Referrals should include a full psychiatric and risk profile.
Clients that will be offered a service are those with a clearly identifiable mental illness with a high risk profile of risk to others.
