Supporting good Mental Health
Frimley Health and Care places a strong focus on supporting good mental and physical health for its population. We are supporting the delivery of the NHS Five Year Forward View for Mental Health and our local transforming care plans for people with learning disabilities.
- to work together with our local communities to facilitate straightforward access to care and support as early as possible.
- to deliver effective and compassionate care which connects people’s mind, body and social context to enable them to live the best life possible.
- people to be given choice about the type of treatment and care they receive and where they receive it. We will work to offer a seamless transition between children and adult mental health and learning disabilities services as well as primary and secondary care.
- to ensure that the work we do as a system adds value to the local achievements and improves the health inequalities this group of people experience.
The system wide Mental Health programme will also support the delivery of the transforming care plans (TCPs) across the footprint. The TCP is a national programme to develop community services, improve access to physical healthcare and reduce inappropriate inpatient admissions for people with Learning Difficulties and/or Autism and ensure more people get a Care, (Education) and Treatment Review. These priorities will all be delivered as a system.
