Older People’s Mental Health Service

Referrals can be from any health care professional, though it is usually GPs or with their support. 

Criteria – any mental health related concern – could range from memory to hallucinations for a patient registered at a GP Practice within the Cambs, P'boro, Hunts or Ely / Fens region.

We handle routine and high risk referrals (5 day referrals). Referrals of a more urgent nature would go directly to FRS from GP or concerned party.

Prism (under 65s) also offer a patient self refer process through their website.

NHS 111 option 2

The extension of the NHS  111 service enables callers  who are experiencing a mental health crisis to  dial the NHS urgent medical advice number, and by choosing ‘option 2’ will be put through to a member of CPFT’s new First Response Service.

Specially-trained mental health staff will speak to callers and discuss with them their mental health care needs – instead of them having to go to accident and emergency departments of local acute hospitals.

Not available when calling from Wisbech – mental health crisis is triaged as per 111 calls.
