How to refer

Your referral will go directly to a dedicated GP case manager. Please ensure that you include the patient’s contact details on the referral, and the case manager will contact your patient within an hour during working hours.

On receipt of the referral, the case manager will check appointment availability with the nearest appropriate Priory service and offer these to the patient.

Integration into EMIS Web and SystmOne

In order to support patients with quick access to specialist private mental health support, Priory can assist with a streamlined referral process, automatically syncing with a GP practice’s systems.

Our automated referral form can pre-populate all essential information from a GP’s clinical system at the click of a button, replacing any current manual process that may be followed. The Priory referral forms can be integrated into both EMIS Web and SystmOne and we also provide a step-by-step list of instructions, on how to set it up.

The benefits of the automated Priory referral process are:

  • Integration of patient data enhances efficiency and ensures essential data is extracted reducing the likelihood of surgeries being contacted for additional information
  • Provides a single point of access for all private mental health referrals
  • Seamless referral management with minimised delay in further investigation and onward management, providing an improved experience for both GP and patient
  • Forms can be sent to a secure NHS.net email address via the clinical system
