Changes to the Emotional Health and Wellbeing Panel and referral pathway into the BEE U service (with immediate effect)

Published: Thursday, 19 May 2022

In January a review of the Emotional Health and Wellbeing panel took place due to feedback from parents/ carers, schools and professionals. Since then the LA has held ongoing discussions with Bee U..

It has been agreed that for now, the panel will not continue and that referrals into the BeeU service are to be made direct into their service.  Referrals should be sent into their single point of access team (details below) and they will communicate directly with schools and parents about decisions made regarding acceptance or decline onto pathways.

Further discussions are continuing about how we can develop the process further, taking account of feedback from the review completed, but this action has been taken now in order to manage current demand. 

If you have a young person that you have concerns about and seek advice and support please discuss this with teams that support your schools (EP’s / BSAT / LSAT / Your Mental Health Lead / Mental Health support teams in schools) or support services like BEAM / Kooth / BEE U Access team as detailed below.

From Friday 20th May  all NEW referrals for all BEE U pathways must be sent directly to the BEE U service.  BEE U have provided some supporting documents that outline the referral pathway and criteria which can be found HERE.
