The LVS is an open access service. We accept self-referrals direct from veterans or via any professional working with veterans from any organisation. We know that some people find it difficult taking that first step into treatment, therefore a referral from an agency, in agreement with the individual may be preferable.
The minimum information required for a referral is listed below. Where possible please use the LVS-Referral-Consent-Form-Combined-NEW attached here.
- Date of Birth
- Contact details
- GP details
- Brief reason for referral
- Whether the client is aware of the referral
In our experience, a more detailed referral allows for a better assessment, so we prefer referrals to include as much background information as possible.
Please note: all referrals must be accompanied by a signed 'Consent to Release Service and Medical Information' form which is included in the link to the LVS referral form above.
You will be required to bring proof of having served in the UK Armed Forces to your initial appointment.
We aim to respond to referrals within 48 hours.
You can refer by letter, email or call the service to discuss any potential referrals. You can also read our Information for Referrers leaflet here.
