Referrals and bookings

How do I get referred to Healios?

Healios works in partnership with NHS services throughout the UK. This includes CAMHS and other services that refer children and young people for mental health, autism and ADHD support. Different areas work in different ways, so it’s best to contact your local CAMHS or GP service to find out if Healios is available in your location.

Does Healios take self-referrals?

We currently accept self-referrals for mental health services through Healios Private Care. We are hoping to expand this offering in 2022 so come back soon for updates.

How do I book an appointment with Healios?

Once we have received a referral from your local service, we will contact you about activating your Healios account. When your account has been activated, you’ll be added to our appointment list. From there, a member of our team will schedule your first appointment.

Depending on the service you’ve been referred for, you might also be able to book an appointment on short notice through your Healios account. If this option is available to you, you’ll receive an email explaining that appointments are available. You will also see a booking section on your dashboard when you log into your account.

Why do I have two appointments on the same day?

If you are coming to Healios for an autism or ADHD assessment, it is likely your first day with us will include two appointments. The first appointment will be an initial assessment, which will be followed by a break. The second appointment will be an observation session.
