The Primary Care Liaison Service (PCLS) provides a first point of contact to access mental health services in Bath and North East Somerset (BaNES), North Somerset, South Gloucestershire, Swindon and Wiltshire. In Bristol, this service is known as Bristol Mental Health Single Point of Access which also provides the same access to mental health services.
The teams offer mental health telephone triage, face-to-face assessment, brief interventions, support, advice and signposting.
If you are concerned about the mental health of yourself or someone you care for, contact your GP for advice. Your GP may decide to refer you to the Primary Care Liaison Service.
The Primary Care Liaison Service receives referrals from GPs and other health or social care professionals. If you are referred to our service, your first appointment will involve discussing your needs to help us decide if we can support you or whether another specialist team would be more suitable.
Professionals can make a referral by selecting the local area based on where your patient’s GP is registered.
