We recognise that whilst our core therapeutic team has a great depth and breadth of expertise, there are still times when we need the support of other professionals as part of caring for those we support. We employ a sessional Psychiatrist who works across all the different sites to support those with complex mental health needs. In the schools we also have a sessional Paediatrician to meet the health needs of the students.
We will also regularly work alongside NHS services, such as local mental health services, dieticians, epilepsy nurses and physiotherapists where there is a need for them to be involved in a person’s care. Each person we support is registered with a local GP and as part of the regular multi-disciplinary team meetings we will continually look at whether referrals need to be made to access support from outside of the Hesley Group.
