MENTAL HEALTH Acute Care Pathway REVIEW.
THE NHS BELONGS TO ALL OF US – MAKE SURE YOU HAVE YOUR SAY.
The review was co-produced between NHS Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) (the organisation responsible for Commissioning – or planning and securing – healthcare in Dorset), Dorset HealthCare (DHC) and people who use services and carers plus a range of other external phttp://www.kenthousehealthcentre.org.uk/News/2a05a969-c19b-4af6-93db-b7378c0f4c10#artners including all the local authorities. Co-production means that the options have been developed working together with people who use mental health services and people who work in mental health services. The approach enabled us to create options collectively.
The purpose of this review is to improve services for people who experience serious mental illness, and for those who at times, may be in need of crisis/acute mental health care.
This is because people who use services told us that they are not meeting their needs. People who work in mental health also told us that services were not supporting people as well as they could.
People who work in mental health services also told us that services were not working as well as they could to meet service users’ needs, partly because the demand on services had risen which made them less able to respond when people were experiencing a mental health crisis.
The review has been undertaken in stages: data and needs analysis, view seeking and modelling. We are currently within stage four, public consultation
