How to be Referred to Our Service

Referrals for admission to CRU are accepted from:

  • The prospective patient.
  • Members of the Primary Care Team.
  • The individual’s GP.
  • Staff members from the Medicine for the Elderly Department,  St. James’s Hospital.
  • Staff members from the Medicine for the Elderly, Tallaght Hospital.
  • Family members/guardians.

N.B. The prospective patient’s referral form must be signed by their own GP or Consultant Geriatrician.

Following referral, individuals will require a pre-assessment review with a Consultant Geriatrician and the CRU Clinical Nurse Specialist. This assessment will be organized by the CRU Clinical Nurse Specialist. Admissions to the CRU Service will be determined following a multidisciplinary team admissions meeting and final acceptance by the CRU Medical Director.
