NHS Referrals (Health Referrals) & Support

Do you need help receiving medical treatment or getting referrals? We understand the process can be a struggle, that’s why we’re here to help. Our team at Woody’s Lodge works closely with Veterans NHS Wales and we can self-refer you to your local NHS team. Whether you or a Veteran you know needs physical or mental health services (or both), we can help you find the right medical expertise. Alternatively, Veterans can use the self-refer service through the Veterans’ NHS Wales website or you can make a referral on behalf of a Veteran

To speak with our support team and arrange a meeting to discuss your health referral needs, please contact us using the details at the bottom of this page or visit our contact us page. In a calm, one-on-one setting, either at your home, at HMP, or via our DiC and Hubs, we will assist with your NHS or agency healthcare forms and help you regain contact with local doctors and community health groups.

Welsh Ambulance Mental Health Support

The Welsh Ambulance Service has created a Mental Health Leaflet to support those with mental health challenges. The leaflet titled, You Are Not Alone, provides a huge range of Mental Health Support Helplines, many of which are free to contact and are available 24/7.
