  1. ‘Mental Health Services Proposals under the Spotlight’ Public Meeting – North Lancashire 21st October 2010 – Town Hall, Lancaster Debbie Nixon Strategic Director for Mental Health Blackburn with Darwen - Blackpool - Central Lancashire - East Lancashire - North Lancashire

  2. Structure of meeting • Introduction • Questions and Answers • Group / discussions • Feedback • Next steps

  3. Context • Mental Health Public Consultations 2004, 2006 • Strategic Outline Case 2007 • Coalition Government’s ‘four tests’ • Support from GP Commissioners • Strengthened public engagement • Clinical evidence base • Consistency with patient choice

  4. The Need to ‘Re-Test’ • Coalition Government has asked the NHS Commissioners to: • Review proposed changes in light of the ‘four tests’ • Ensure the highest clinical quality and choice • Ensure best value in constrained financial climate • Timescale • October 2010 – February 2011

  5. Key Points– Summary of Consultations • Reduce 15 inpatient units to new purpose built sites (4 sites – 500 beds) • Current estates not ‘fit for purpose’ • Too many people being treated in hospital • A lot of care provided by hospitals could be offered in community settings • Closures after appropriate alternatives in place in the community

  6. What has happened since then? • Significant investment in specialist community teams across Lancashire • Crisis Resolution and Home Treatment Teams (8 teams) • Early Intervention (1 team) • Assertive Outreach (7 teams)

  7. Some Local Developments in North Lancashire • Improved Access to Psychological (talking) Therapies (IAPT) and computerised CBT • Greater support for self-help (‘Solutions’ Social Prescribing) • Memory Assessment Clinics • Dementia Champions • Rehab and Supported Accommodation Service Plans

  8. What’s changed since the original Consultation? • Inpatient bed numbers have reduced (790 to 549) • Increasing number of patients treated in alternative community services • Increased national focus on Dementia • Ageing population, people living longer – Dementia is a bigger issue

  9. Questions? • How have the changes affected you? • What are your experiences of community alternatives? • How could they be improved? • Reduced beds may mean fewer sites – what do you think? (Travel vs. fit for purpose services?) • What would be the key issues?
