This disease insight report has been produced by Commissioning Excellence and Janssen-Cilag Limited to help those involved locally in the planning, commissioning and provision of care for people with, or at risk of, schizophrenia to identify gaps and check that services meet identified needs.
Hospital care for people with schizophrenia is currently a huge burden on the NHS. In the year 2016/2017 there were 12,612 admissions for patients with schizophrenia with a total indicative cost of £629 million. An important factor for supporting schizophrenia patients is proactive care which prevents patients going into crisis. However, current care for people with schizophrenia is fragmented and part of a demoralised system that does not deliver the quality of treatment that enables recovery.
The report is designed to provide insight to both commissioners and providers into the level of care for patients with schizophrenia and psychosis.
