First Contact Signposting Scheme form

Please don't use this form to contact adult care about safeguarding matters or to request an urgent assessment as this email inbox is not always regularly monitored. Please contact Call Derbyshire tel: 01629 533190 if your concern is urgent.

Please complete this form to make a referral to the First Contact Derbyshire Signposting Scheme. You can make a referral for yourself, a family member or a friend. If you're a professional you can refer a client or patient.


Complete First Contact online form


If you're making a referral on behalf of someone else you must get their permission first. By completing the ‘statement of consent’ you are confirming that you've gained their consent and explained the scheme to them.

If you have any problems making a referral to the First Contact Signposting Scheme or have any queries, please email

All the information in the form is confidential and will be submitted securely. If you provide your email address, you will receive an email upon successful submission followed by a second email to confirm the referral has been received and opened. 

Printing and saving the completed form

Once you've completed and submitted the online form you can print it for your own records. 

If you'd prefer to save it as a PDF, you'll need to go to the settings menu in your browser and select ‘print’. You should then see the print options window. The next step depends on which browser you are using:

  • If you're using Google Chrome, select 'change printer'. You should then see an option to save as PDF. Tick this option and click the save button. 
  • If you're using Internet Explorer select 'select printer'. You should then see an option titled 'CutePDF Writer'. Select this option and select 'print' (although you select 'print' the document will in fact give you options to save).
