Description:
The purpose of this review is to examine the effectiveness of current adult mental health services provided by the North Western Health Board, the deployment of resources, and to make proposals on how NWHB could develop its mental health services to reflect modern evidence-based good practice. The Sainsbury Centre for Mental Health (SCMH) was commissioned by the North Western Health Board to develop a model for service delivery for adults with mental health problems. The terms of reference for the review were • SCMH to propose a new service model that is evidence based and is service user and carer orientated. • SCMH should take into account emerging national policy changes. • SCMH should make challenging but achievable proposals. • SCMH should highlight areas of good practice to be built upon. • SCMH should identify management and service structure developments that would be necessary to support the proposed new service model. SCMH were also requested to address the interface issues with other care groups especially Older People’s Mental Health, but also Child and Adolescent Services, Forensic Mental Health, Substance Misuse and Learning Disabilities Services. SCMH seek to address this challenge by offering a detailed service model for adult mental health services, proposing additional developments for older people’s mental health and identifying areas for resolution in terms of interfaces with other care groups. These recommendations are supported by proposals for an implementation plan that identifies service development priorities as well as organisational and workforce development needs.
