The Disabilities Trust has launched a new secure online portal to make it easier for professionals working in health and social care to make referrals to its services in a user friendly and time efficient way.

A development from the Trust’s previous online referral form, the new unique online referral portal has additional benefits for referrers using the portal including:

  • secure upload of PDF and Word documents;
  • option to save part completed referrals, then return to review and submit later;
  • automatic population of referrer contact details;
  • view status of live referrals

Catherine Portman, Business Development Manager, said ‘We designed the new portal with the referrer needs as a priority including security, option to upload documents, and to maintain the ease of use – all adding up to making a referral to us speedy and safe. If people can book train tickets or shop online they should be able to use our referral portal too!’
