Information for referrers
Referrals should be sent in writing to the Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist, Mildred Creak Unit. We accept referrals from Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrists in Tier 3 CAMHS services, and also from Consultant Paediatricians within Great Ormond Street Hospital.
Dr Jon Goldin, Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist, is happy to discuss cases on the telephone prior to the decision to refer. We have a fortnightly referral meeting, where referrals are discussed by our team and a senior team member is allocated to liaise with the referrer.
If the referral is for a patient with an eating disorder, it should be addressed to Dr Dasha Nicholls, Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist, Eating Disorders Team, in the first instance.
For more information, read our Information for referrers guide.
Urgent referrals and emergencies
We are not able to accept emergency admissions, but we do respond as quickly as possible to all referrals, usually within 24 hours. Cases are prioritised in discussion with the referrer.
If you wish to discuss a case before deciding whether to refer, please contact:
