Crisis Team Is a bed available ? • Last 3 years build up of demand leading to in 1April 2013-14 March31 125 People sent outside Derbyshire for an Acute ie urgent MH bed • Invested in crisis house -5 beds • Invested in new ward in Derby and home treatment staff • Now no one sent outside Derbyshire (but its very tight) East Midlands Ambulance service April 2014 we attended 172 calls for psychiatric/suicide in Derbyshire alone; this does not include many other call categories for this patient type We do our best!!! But is it good enough for these patients? We want to work with you to help these people but we can’t do it without you Workforce at EMAS Clinicians • Emergency care assistants and Technicians • Paramedics and ECPs • Registered Nurses • Recruiting GPs Emergency Control room • Call takers and dispatchers • Clinical assessment team Issues we face • Limited care pathways for patients with mental health problems/ in crisis • Limited referral routes especially out of hours • Frontline staff with limited MH training expected to treat this patient group • No access to patients notes so unaware of the patients background (especially when violent) • No where to take the patient except ED ???? The question from EMAS • “Where do we refer these patients to?? There are very few pathways open to them and we do not have the skills to adequately assess them correctly.” The NHS Questions • What can we do differently to divert before a crisis? • Once a crisis has occurred what could we do differently? • Should we all aim to reduce compulsory admissions by 2017 is that a sensible target for us all?
