Practitioners please log in to see referral details

What we do

The service supports families to:

  • Coordinate appointments effectively, ensuring regular attendance and easy access.
  • Seek more effective transport options to and from appointments.
  • Provide impartial advocacy to families, to ensure a full understanding of health input and the expectations of home strategies.
  • Explore local services, and access them accordingly.

The service is designed to reduce the number of families in Rochdale, Middleton and Heywood who do not attend appointments for whatever reason, this helps to free up clinicians office time, which can be time consuming and costly for health services.

How can you access the service?

The service is not operated through self-referrals, families are only able to access after a referral is made by a health practitioner within the Children's Acute and Ongoing Needs Team.
