placeholder4Referral Guidelines

We currently accept referrals for children under the care of an Alder Hey Consultant. Patients can be referred by letter or Meditech. Referrals must include the following:

  • Weight
  • Length or height
  • Head circumference if under 2 years
  • Relevant clinical details
  • Reason for referral

We are unable to accept referrals for common childhood nutritional problems as these are more correctly dealt with by the primary care team. These include iron deficiency, obesity and constipation.

We are unable to accept referrals from GPs. GP referrals should be made to the local community paediatric dietitians. Your local PCT should be able to direct you to appropriate services.
