The checklist can be completed by a variety of health and social care professionals, who have been trained in its use. This could include, for example: registered nurses employed by the NHS, GPs, other clinicians, or local authority staff such as social workers. NHS Dorset arranges training for professionals and will only accept checklists from those who have completed the training.
If you have not received training and would like to submit a checklist, please contact us so that we can let you know how to submit a checklist.
Checklists should not be delayed because training has not been attended, and we will work with you to ensure that an individual is referred as quickly as possible. When contacting us by telephone please ensure you select the option for health and social care professionals.
All checklists (with the NHS consent form) must be submitted to NHS Dorset using an online portal called DRAR. In order to gain access, you must have completed the checklist training. Access can be requested by contacting us at email@example.com
