The Single Point of Access is a team of administrator’s who receive, screen and process commissioned referrals in the Norfolk And Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust and signpost referrals to the relevant service line.
We do not accept 4-hour emergency referrals, these are phoned directly to the relevant team by the referrer.
The team take telephone calls from stakeholders enquiring about access to the Trusts Services, others asking about referral pathways and general enquiries.
Once a referral has been made and received by our service it will be processed via the Electronic Health Records and passed to the appropriate service. Should you have an enquiry about where your referral is within the system you can contact the team by telephone on 0300 790 0371. If you already have a named professional involved in your care or are aware of the service line you are allocated to you can ring them direct.
The times above exclude bank holidays.
We will do our best to answer your enquiry whilst you are on the telephone or we will transfer your call to the service line you are allocated to.

We are not a Clinical Team offering treatments
We are always happy to talk to Carers, friends and family who are wanting or needing advice or wishing to share information which concerns them or that may positively impact on the Service Users care. We adhere to strict data protection legislation, however this does not affect access to our service.
If you already have a named professional involved in your care or are aware of the service line you are allocated to then this would be who to contact. If you don’t or it is a medical emergency, then contact your GP who will assess what course of action is appropriate.
