How to access the service

Referral Criteria

  • The child should present with physical difficulties and/or problems with mobility which impact on their everyday function, their ability to achieve their motor milestones, develop gross motor skills, or which affect their balance and/ or strength
  • These difficulties should impact on the child’s functional performance at home, at school and/or in extra-curricular activities
  • Children and young people aged 0-18, or 19 if in special education.
  • Children with a north east Essex GP
  • Children in permanent residence in north east Essex.
  • Children not resident within north east Essex but who attend school in the area, where the main reason for referral relates to problems in P.E. or with mobility problems accessing the school environment.


In the first instance referrals must be made by a professional, for example:

  • GP
  • Paediatrician or specialist registrar
  • Medical specialists, eg orthopaedic surgeons, neurologist, oncologists.
  • Health visitor
  • Health improvement nurse (formerly school nurse)
  • Community nurse
  • Allied health professionals eg podiatrist, therapist
  • Special educational needs co-ordinator with supporting medical information from GP or relevant health professional
  • Social worker.


If your child has been known to the service previously, you can refer them back to us on the following conditions: 

  • Your child was not discharged from the service for failing to attend appointments
  • Your child is being re-referred for the same condition.

Re-referring to the service:

There may be times when a child or young person (CYP) requires further support from the clinical team and a new episode of care needs to be created. Examples may include equipment out-growing, a recent growth spurt leading to change in function/pain or a deterioration in clinical presentation or symptoms.  It is expected that all those seeking a re-referral have worked though the advice and recommendations offered by the clinical team previously and can demonstrate in their re-referral request, what has been tried and what new difficulties are being faced.  For musculoskeletal conditions, a CYP can only be re-referred if the information relates to the same joint/condition.
