HOW TO REFER

Adults (18+ years)

There are 2 ways for adults to be referred into the Aspire Health Referral service:

  1. You can self-refer using the 'start' button at the bottom of this page. This should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete. You will need an accurate height and weight measurement to do this.
  2. Your GP or other health professional can complete a referral form for you and email it to us or they can refer using our online portal by selecting "I'm a health professional and want to refer someone".

Children (5 – 18 years)

If you are interested in referring your child we request you get in touch with your child's GP or other healthcare professional to complete the specific junior referral form. Once completed the professional can send to our secure Aspire email.

WHAT TO EXPECT

  • Once your submission has been received and processed you can expect to receive a telephone call within 14 days from a member of our team. They will speak to you to gather any additional information and what you are looking for support with.

  • We will then discuss to ensure you are allocated to the best pathway to suit your needs and circumstances. An additional in-depth assessment with a member of the team may be required before a final outcome can be agreed.

OUR EXPECTATIONS

You will be supported by the service with the expectation that you can commit time to the programme and have the desire to take full advantage of the provided pathways. Full engagement to the programme is expected from all who use the service to gain the most from it, however we understand that life is not simple at times so your referral can be paused at any point whilst on the programme until you are ready to commit at a later date. Please discuss any problems with us.

SO, ARE YOU READY?

  1. Can you commit to a programme for a minimum of 12 weeks?
  2. Are you in the right frame of mind to start making changes?
  3. Do you have any personal distractions that might make it difficult for you to commit or make changes?
