Hospital Liaison Service Update Chris Binns, Operational Service Manager
Hospital Liaison Service • Psychiatric liaison services provide mental health care to people being treated for physical health conditions in general hospitals. • Mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety, alcohol and memory problems are very common in general hospital. Research has shown that they are often not recognised or treated • Untreated mental health issues can lead to longer hospital admission and poorer physical health overall in hospital inpatients and increased health care costs. • An effective liaison psychiatry service offers the prospect of saving money as well as improving health .
What did will be different? • Extend location of services and visibility • Better Support to hospital staff • Increased hours of working • Improved Multi disciplinary approach • Post discharge support • Service for High Intensity Users of Hospital Services
Whats next... • Improving follow up for people who self harm • Working with Specialities within the Hospital • Development of MUPS service • Service Evaluation And hopefully long term funding....
Refreshment Break • Refreshments served on the mezzanine level and market place
