Children’s Assessment and Referral Service (CARS)

CARS offer the following services:

 

  • Telephone advice 11am-7pm Monday - Friday: The consultant on call for the service is available by phone on 07557 159092 between 11am and 7pm to take calls from GPs, and can answer queries about potential referrals to outpatients or acute referrals, or give advice on the management of the patient in primary care.

 

  • Email advice within 24 hours Monday - Friday: For less urgent queries, GPs can email general.paediatrics@nhs.net at any time for queries and advice on referrals or management in primary care. A consultant paediatrician will review and reply to emails by the next working day.

 

  • Rapid access outpatient review:  As part of the CARS service, Evelina London will now provide a rapid access outpatient facility for children who would benefit from a prompt paediatric assessment, but who do not have an urgent clinical need which indicates they should attend A&E. Referrals can be made through telephone discussion with the consultant paediatrician operating the telephone hotline.
