Integrated approaches to mental health

09 Oct 2019
NAPC Keynote

The NHS Long Term Plan made provision for mental health services to be more fully integrated across primary care through primary care networks. This shift towards more integrated, population-level health systems is designed to enhance prevention and treatment services at a local level. This session will explore how different parts of the system are managing closer working including looking at how mental health teams are being recreated around primary care networks. The panel will also explore the benefits patients are starting to see where integration is working well. The session will hear the difference Healthier Fleetwood is making to people’s lives and learn about the mental health pilots across Surrey Heartlands.
