Derby city and south Derbyshire single point of access (SPOA) – Specialist Children's Services

The referral form is for GPs and primary care professionals in health, education and local government to contact the SPOA team in order to request support for children and young people with emotional and behavioural problems in the Derby city and south Derbyshire area only.

If the referral is for a neurodevelopmental concern, please refer using the form on our Neurodevelopmental Pathway page.

CAMHS in North Derbyshire is provided by Chesterfield Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust - see their website for further information. 

At present, we are requesting that GPs and health professionals make referrals by downloading an electronic referral form and completing it in Microsoft Word. Please keep a copy of any information submitted through this form, in case you need to refer to it or resubmit it. 

We hope to be able to resume using an online referral form soon.
