How do I get referred?

If you are new to Rennie Grove, you can request a referral to 'Grove House Day Services' from any health care professional involved in your care, including your GP.  Referral guidance for health care professionals can be found on our website here.   

Alternatively, you can self-refer by phoning us on 01727 731000, or calling in at Grove House during one of our Drop-in Sessions, which run Tuesday-Thursday 9am-3pm and Fridays 9am-1pm.  When self-referring, it is helpful if you can provide us with your GP name and address and your preferred method of contact. 

What will happen during an appointment?

There will be an individual assessment and a treatment plan based on your needs. Appointments take place at Grove House (to which transport can be provided if necessary) or a home appointment can be arranged.
