With an increasing focus on STPs as the future for innovation and change, the name of the networks will be changing to reflect this. With effect from September 2017, all networks will now be known as Regional Mental Health Transformation and Sustainability Networks.
We are delighted to announce we will be holding an eighth North East, Yorkshire and Humber event. Due to feedback received this network will now alternate between regional venues, and so this meeting will be held in York.
The conference will be chaired by Ms Kathryn Singh – Chief Executive, Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust on Tuesday 5th December, with a focus on:
- Psychosis – Improving prevention and timely intervention to optimise outcomes
- ADHD – developing a sustainable service for adults with ADHD across the North East, Yorkshire and Humber
- Depression – building capacity in the community and a recovery-focused service
The aims, objectives and structure of the series will remain the same; to bring together like minded people from primary and secondary care, and associated organisations involved in the commissioning and delivery of services to care for and support patients with mental health conditions. This provides a platform for active discussion and exchange of ideas to cope with the commissioning challenges encountered in mental health in a more integrated way. The new focus on STPs will also allow for the introduction of a regional seating plan to further aid local discussion and outputs.
Feedback from previous meetings:
