Health Technology Wales researchers searched for evidence on the use of a referral algorithm to determine the urgency of mental health referrals. HTW’s Assessment Group reviewed this topic as part of a prioritisation exercise in February 2020 and concluded not to progress this topic further. This topic may be revisited in future and its suitability for fuller assessment reconsidered.
