Breaking Barriers Innovations Health and Social Care Programme 2019:
Thinking it Through Report
27th June 2019
Thinking it Through is a collaborative programme between Breaking Barriers Innovations (BBI) and partners from the independent sector and the NHS.
BBI convened a Roundtable on February 14 2019, which was attended by a number of senior managers and leaders from across health and social care commissioning and service delivery. The aim of this Roundtable was to identify the key challenges facing mental health services, how these are being addressed, and what the vision for the future of mental health commissioning and provision looks like, in light of the NHS Long Term Plan (LTP) and the independent review of the Mental Health Act.
Four questions were posed to the participants:
- What are the main barriers and challenges in taking forward new models of care and treatment arising from the NHS LTP and the independent review of the Mental Health Act?
- What can be learnt from a focus on place and thinking about vulnerable groups in the system?
- What steps do local areas need to take in the next 12 months to enact changes required under the NHS LTP?
- What additional support is required for local areas to develop a more integrated, place-based local offer for mental health services?
