Referral Process

We regret to advise that our waiting list is temporarily closed until further notice.

We have had to take the decision to temporarily close our waiting list to any new referrals until further notice, simply due to high demand.

We will accept referrals up until Friday 7th February 2020 but will not be able to accept any after this date, until further notice.

This temporary suspension of our referral pathway has been assessed and discussed by our Clinical Director, Dr Craig Speirs, our Board and CEO, Duncan Shaw (BA Joint Hons, PG CBT). This is deemed in the best interest of our clients and staff and is due to our service capacity being exceeded and the current high volume of clients on our waiting list requiring support.  This temporary suspension of referrals will allow us to ensure we meet the needs of all the vulnerable clients on the waiting list, and current clients being supported at Safe Harbour.

We aim to provide a high quality of emotional support in every case and, as aforementioned, feel that this decision is best for both our current clients and to alleviate current pressures on our Emotional Support Practitioners.

We will inform all GP Practice referrers by letter and update our website when we reopen our referral pathway.
