Do not visit a GP practice, urgent care centre, or any of our services if you have symptoms.

We are aware that this will be a worrying time for you and for your family. We are doing all we can to keep our CYPF services running while also keeping you and our staff safe. However, please be aware that due to the impact of COVID-19 we will be prioritising urgent appointments and referrals and some services will be disrupted, postponed or delivered differently (via phone or video link where possible).

To keep our users safe, you need to be approved by our team to access SHaRON. You can ask to be referred to SHaRON through your GP or clinician.

If you’re accepted onto SHaRON, you’ll be supported by our moderating team, which includes experienced clinicians, parents, carers and young people who have used Berkshire Healthcare services, and our partners in the voluntary sector.

Our team will share with you our understanding of the difficulties you’re facing.

We’ll be able to monitor how you’re getting on and identify possible problems, which enables us to respond quickly and get you the help you need.
