Report
The Pointless Separation of Care
Health Perspective

at some time in their life

• In a year about 29,OOO Derbyshire people will be open
to NHS MH adult teams .

future

but…
• Non Service Solutions, community asset building and
resilience is needed .
Crisis Concordat A Health Perspective
• Casualty 1500 people a year coming to
casualty following self harm (approx.)
• Used to be seen 9-5 7 days week.
• Now 24 hours 365 days per week through
RAID investment-Liaison team in DRH and CRH
Liaison team
The view for AMP
• Increasing use of MH Act powers
• 5 % increase year on year in compulsory
admissions
• Before the street triage pilot of those that come
to hospital on a section 136 only 30% are
admitted.
• Disjointed connections between agencies and
expectations of roles and of what a person wishes
and what is offered –see the vignettes
• Reforming 136 Group and multi professional
forum to link into the Crisis concordat
136 to Hospital
Out of hours
• High priority and area of concern for People
who use services
• How to extend hours so a problem doesn't
become a crisis
• Help line Rethink Focus Line and Samaritans

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?
