MHPF have published four Standards for Safety Planning to ensure mental health service providers implement safer practice and encourage commissioners to plan most effectively in this time of system change
Putting peoples’ needs at the heart of services
Our members deliver services across the full mental health care pathway: housing, independent hospitals, employment and training, forensic care, psychological therapies, advocacy and more
The Department of Health has written to MHPF to thank the voluntary sector for their contribution to the recent consultation on the department’s proposed priority areas of access and waiting times . The work on this is still progressing and MHPF still welcome the views of our members. We will keep members updated on progress and how your feedback will be fed in the next stage. For more information on the priority areas please see attached presentation.
Healthwatch have launched their first special inquiry looking at the experience of people who are discharged from hospital.
The inquiry is collecting data about the care and support which people are offered once they leave hospital and the prevalence of readmission following a lack of apporpriate care. The focus is on three vulnerable groups, the homeless, older people and people with mental health problems.
