Wellbeing Practitioner (WBP) Referrals (Low Intensity Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) Update:

We will allocate 10 spaces on the waiting list per area (Mid, West and East), totalling 30 referrals on the waiting list at any one time. Once an areas’ threshold is reached, we will close down referrals for this area until the waiting list has been cleared, and consequently will be opened up again. This new process will significantly reduce the waiting time for young people accessing our service; consisting of a maximum waiting time of 8-12 weeks (depending on WBP current case load) and ensure a quicker turnaround of cases from referral to finished LICBT treatment. Ultimately, this will ensure a more efficient and effective service, and better outcomes for our service-users.

Please be aware that until the child or young person is activated by the case worker that the risk associated with the child/young person sits with the referrer not Kernow Connect.
