MY PROFESSION -
COMMUNITY PSYCHIATRIC NURSE

Sudha Chavda. Hillingdon

Referrals

We receive referrals from various agencies. About 80% are from General Practitioners and rest of the referrals are from the police, Accident and Emergency Department, Probation officers or relatives. We encounter special problems and difficulties in dealing with multicultural and multi-faith communities in Southall. It is mainly due to the cultural and religious beliefs and linguistic background of the clients. In order to provide the service to such diverse community, it is vital to understand their background, migration and lifestyle. Hopefully, I will aim to elaborate more on this issues in my next article. Till then bye!!
