When we receive your application form, someone from the assessments team will make contact and arrange a mutually convenient time and date for assessment, which can be face to face, by telephone or by Skype. Wherever possible, we would encourage you to visit and have a face to face assessment, so that you get the opportunity to see the house and meet staff and people using the service.
We aim to complete the assessment within one week of receiving the application form. The assessment usually lasts between 30-60 minutes and gives you and us the chance to talk through your individual situation and the challenges you face, talk about what would be expected of you if you came into treatment at one of our services and make sure that we have a clear understanding of your treatment and support needs so that we can make an informed decision about whether our services can meet those needs.
After the assessment, your case will be taken to our weekly multi-disciplinary team meeting, which takes place every Wednesday. At this meeting, staff from all disciplines (Psychiatrist, GP, Service Managers, Counsellors) get together to discuss all the applications we have received and make decisions about whether or not people can be offered a place at our services. These decisions are based on all the information we have gathered, which may include psychiatric reports, community care assessments and information from the criminal justice system if relevant. We will let you know the decision as soon as possible after the meeting.
