What should you do next?

Please make sure you are registered with a GP based in Northumberland before you refer to us.

*UPDATED PHONE SELF REFERRAL PROCESS*
To make a TMN phone referral you must now leave a voicemail with your name, date of birth and a contact phone number. We will aim to call you back as soon as possible between 9am and 5pm from a private number – this may take a few days. We will make 2 attempts to speak to you between 9am and 5pm but IF WE ARE UNABLE TO CONTACT YOU YOUR REFERRAL WILL BE CLOSED AND YOU WILL NEED TO CALL BACK.
If you have any concerns about being able to make a referral online or through this call system you can speak to your GP about them referring on your behalf.

You can also email us on tmn.info@nhs.net.
