Important Notices:

URGENT NOTICE:

We are now closed to all referrals from Wandsworth until 1st July 2024 whilst we are dealing with our waitlist.

 
Due to the high amount of referrals we have received our waiting times have increased significantly in Wandsworth. To combat this we will now no longer be accepting referrals for any young people who live in or are registered to a GP in Wandsworth until July, whilst we process the existing referrals. This includes referrals from GPs, healthcare professionals, self-referrals and referrals from parents/guardians.
Please refer to school based services, family consultancy, KOOTH etc. We have linked a helpful website with other support options here. If you have any urgent concerns about a young person please refer them to CAMHS.
We are still open to referrals for young people from Lambeth.

Please note that due to the high number of referrals we are receiving, there has been a significant increase in the waiting times to be contacted for an initial assessment/access support.

For anything urgent please contact your regular GP, your local CAMHS emergency line, 111, A&E or 999.

FAQs:

Is the advice confidential?

Yes. Anything you discuss with the Well Centre staff will stay confidential within the team. Even if you are under 16 nothing will usually be said to anyone including parents, other family members, care workers or tutors without your permission.

There are a few exceptions to this:

  • if you agree we can tell other people in order for them to help to keep you safe.
  • if we are concerned that you or anybody else may be harmed or in danger, we are allowed to tell appropriate professionals, but we will discuss that with you at the time.
  • if you are being treated elsewhere it is best if you allow the doctor or nurse to inform the practice of any treatment you are receiving. Again, we will ask your permission to do this first.

Can a friend come with me?

Yes. If you’d like to bring a friend (or friends) down to the Well Centre to support you that’s fine. If you’d like them to accompany you when you see the doctor, nurse or health & wellbeing practitioner again that’s fine – you’re in control and can decide how you feel most comfortable.

Can I choose to see a male or female doctor?

Yes. We have both male & female doctors available at The Well Centre. Please let us know your preference at point of booking.
