How to refer

EMIS form Download Form

Referral methods: E-referral, Email, EMIS managed referral

A referral form for iCope has been uploaded onto EMIS for GP surgeries in Camden and Islington.

  • For any questions about suitability for the iCope service you can seek advice from the Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner or Psychological Therapist linked to your practice. If you do not know the clinician in your practice, you can contact us.
  • Where a patient has more complex mental health needs you can also consult with the Practice Based Mental Health Team, who will be able to advise about the most suitable service, and will liaise with iCope if necessary.

Patients can self-refer (by online form or telephone) but please note that for patients with more complex needs (for example where there are risk concerns, a history of contact with mental health difficulties or previous contact with mental health services) it would be more helpful to receive a GP referral as this helps to ensure we have adequate information when deciding on the next steps.
