Access Phase 1: The case for change
Sunderland was chosen as the 1st location for the development of a new
urgent access model following discussions with service users, carers, GPs
and commissioners.
Like a lot of areas there were:
•Problems getting through to Crisis Team by phone as Triage saturated++
•Overnight and at peak demand times callers could wait hours for a return
call from a clinician
•No ready point of access for Older People or People with a significant
Learning Disability seeking Urgent Advice/ Intervention
•Fewer than 35% of referrals needed a admission/ home treatment
•Most of the non-crisis referrals required advice/ signposting but at low risk/
acuity
Engagement
• Large scale events- Local Authority, GP’s,
Commissioners, Service Users
• Focussed Group Events- Service Users,
GP’s, Staff, 3rd sector.
• Series of design workshops
• Ongoing engagement through and after
implementation

Phase 1: The Model
•IRS to offer 24/7 Universal telephone access for requests for urgent help.
•No restrictions on who could refer
•Triage and Routing over the phone- (Mental Health and other local
Services)
•Face to Face Triage (Rapid Response) if clear plan cannot be determined
over the phone
•Seven Band 6 Nurses for Telephone and Rapid Response
•Five Band 3 Nurses for call handling and Rapid Response
•Use of digital dictation and 3G laptops for clinical documentation
•Flexible interchangeable roles and rotation between Crisis Team and IRT
roles dependant on demand.
Phase 1: Benefits of IRS
• Quick and efficient responses to requests for help
• Effective routing to the correct services in and out of NTW
• Flexible and collaborative working systems implemented
• Reduction of clinician administration burden, and freeing time to care
(mainly through adoption of mobile digital dictation)
• Improving personal and clinical outcomes for people in crisis with mental
ill health by reducing admissions/ MHA detentions, improving patient
safety and patient experience
