From Tuesday the 14th of February the Hertfordshire Supervisory Body will no longer be able to processing DOLS applications from care homes unless they come via the applications portal.
For several months now the Team have been trialling the portal with a number of care homes and from the 5th of December the link has been live on HCC intranet: to view and make a referral just follow the link below:
The portal is an easy way to log a DoLS application. It should reduce errors and offers guidance to ensure the correct information is provided. There is also an option for referrers to check an application has been received for up to 90 days and the ability to print off the application once completed.
For any assistance or queries in the initial stages please don’t hesitate to contact the DoLS Team for support on 01438 843800
