Different groups of people in the UK are experiencing the coronavirus outbreak and the lockdown very differently. One area of concern is the impact of the pandemic on mental health and how this is affecting some groups much more than others.

Mental health disorders account for almost a quarter of the total burden of ill health in the UK, we can expect the recent COVID19 outbreak to add to these figures quite substantially over the coming months.

We thought it timely to host our virtual, Delivering best practice on scale: Mental Health Conference, the conference will aim to provide NHS Commissioners, primary care providers and NHS Mental health foundation trusts with a platform to share best practice and listen to a selection of public sector policymakers.

The NHS is placing more national focus than ever before on mental health. NHS England and NHS Improvement aim to deliver a transformation in adult and older adult mental health services by 2023/24, building on the progress made to date towards achieving the recommendations set out in the Five Year Forward View for Mental Health and aiming to rebalance the provision of care and ensure that people can access the care they need closer to home.

Plan key commitments include:

Crisis and acute mental health: The Long-Term Plan commit’s to ensuring people can access to a comprehensive set of crisis and acute services across the country.

Simplifying access to urgent mental health support through NHS 111: By 2023/24, anyone seeking urgent mental health support in England will be able to do so via the simple universal 3-digit 111 number.

Specialist liaison mental health teams in emergency departments and general hospital wards: to ensure that when people with mental health needs attend A&E, it is equipped to meet their mental as well as physical needs.

Clinically led review of standards for urgent and emergency mental health care: 11 pilot mental health trusts are currently testing the feasibility of introducing waiting time and quality standards for urgent mental health services.

Our Delivering best practice on the scale: Mental Health Conference will lift the lid on the NHS E/I Transformation plans and provide key updates on subjects including:

• New Care Model pilots in specialised mental health services

• CAMHS

• NHS-led Provider Collaboratives

• Digital Mental Health Services

NHS Employees are entitled to complimentary passes, please get in touch with the team today to register your place.
