New mental health pilot sites launched in England

3rd October 2016

Six mental health pilot sites have been launched by NHS England this month to help prevent patients from being admitted to hospital miles away from their homes.

Intended to drive the design of new approaches to delivering children's and young people's mental health services nationwide, the six sites aim to reduce psychiatric hospital admissions and time spent in hospital.

Mental health trusts, independent sector and charitable organisations will work together on these pilot schemes, with partners sharing a local budget to effectively reorganise services in their area.

Two of the six sites will focus on increasing the level of crisis care available in the community for children and young people, while the other four sites will seek to relocate people in secure mental health services closer to home, as well as addressing their surrounding social care needs to help them leave inpatient care and reintegrate into the community as quickly as possible.

Claire Murdoch, NHS England's national director for mental health, said: "Today's action will help ensure that patients are treated as close to home as possible, and help reduce the need to send some of our most vulnerable people miles across the country to receive vital treatment."
