Engagement Events, July 2011
NHS Bristol is committed to providing safe, effective, high quality and sustainable mental health services that support the needs of our multicultural services users.
In spring 2011 NHS Bristol commissioned an initial scoping exercise to assess the level of satisfaction with the current provision of mental health services in the City
This scoping exercise revealed a strong desire and belief among GPs, service users and other stakeholders, that mental health services could be improved and modernised.
Today’s event is aimed at hearing what you think.
In response to the findings of the scoping exercise, and the desire to improve mental health services, the PCT Board made a decision in principle to re-commission certain services currently provided by Avon and Wiltshire Partnership Trust and Turning Point from 2013.
Services will be re-commissioned as part of the normal commissioning cycle
No decision has been made as to how this re-commissioning will be undertaken: we want to know what you think first.
NHS funded mental health services for:
Linked to but not directly affected:
- Loosening of some targets and requirements to enable innovation
The current population of Bristol is estimated as 433,078
This has grown by 11% between 2001-2009 (4.5% nationally)
Population expected to rise to 548,100 by 2026
30% of children in Bristol’s schools are of a Black and Minority Ethnic heritage (BME)
Increasingly diverse and ‘young’ population - Yet aging population: greater demand on dementia services
There are clear links between mental health need and deprivation – Bristol has areas of significant deprivation as well as wealth
Bristol needs to create a mentally healthy environment for everyone
Around 30,000 (or 8% of over 16s) of Bristol residents are estimated to have more than one mental health condition in 2010, rising to 32,000 by 2015.
Some of the most common of these include:
There are different types of dementia, affecting all ages, ethnicities and classes
Nationally there are approximately 750,000 people with dementia and this number is expected to double in the next 30 years (NDS)
In Bristol it is calculated there are up to 5,921 people living with a form of dementia (based on 2008 JSNA, POPPI figures)
Only 1,767 (23%) of these are known to GP services (Bristol Dementia strategy 2010)
By 2028 it is expected that this number will increase to 7,895 people (33% increase)
Bristol has a Dementia Strategy supported by a multi-agency partnership which is leading this work
An effective mental health programme should include:
An integrated strategy to support population mental well-being
An effective promotion, prevention and early intervention programme for children and young people
A targeted prevention and early intervention programme addressing high risk groups and key risk factors
An effective primary mental health service
Access to effective specialist mental health treatments
Well resourced community and voluntary sectors providing network of non – stigmatised support for recovery, inclusion and well being.
Does Bristol need its own model of service delivery given it is more urban and diverse than the surrounding rural areas?
Ageless services, what are they and how do we achieve them?
Should the priority of future investment be towards primary and preventative services or targeted towards those people in the greatest need?
Have the specialist teams introduced over the past decade been a success?
Where should the distinction be between social care, primary and secondary mental health care?
Engagement and involvement process throughout July and August
