A referral*** for the service should come directly from the pupil’s school and must be accompanied by medical evidence. The confirmation of medical need document*** can be completed by a paediatrician, consultant or qualified CAMHS professional and should identify the pupil’s medical need, the impact that this is having on pupil’s functioning and the current treatment pathway. Referrals that do not contain this information may not be considered.
The EHN Team, school and health professionals need to work collaboratively to identify the correct pathway, ensure appropriate academic content and prepare for a well-planned reintegration. Once support is agreed, the referring school will be required to organise a multi-disciplinary meeting to plan the support.
It is the referrer’s responsibility to provide the supporting medical need document.
