Our team

We are a multidisciplinary team. This means we are a group of professionals who specialise in different areas of medicine but work together to make decisions about how to care for our patients.

The team works together with inpatient acute mental health, the Primary Care Plus Team, Home Treatment Team, Mental Health Liaison Team, and specialist services to provide care.

Our aims

We aim to:

  • Deliver recovery services to people who would otherwise face extended hospital stays or inappropriate admission to other NHS services.
  • Provide a multidisciplinary service to people in the community.
  • Provide a full assessment and personalised care plan that involves active therapy or opportunity for recovery.
  • Maximise independence and help service users return to living at home.
  • Deliver short-term interventions that promote recovery.
  • Work with a range of health and social care professionals.
  • Enhance the health, independence and well-being of adults living in the community with a mental health illness.

To achieve this, we use the following tools:

  • Assessments
  • Therapies
  • Brief interventions
  • Care coordination
  • Signposting
  • Social Inclusion (including housing & welfare rights advice)
  • Employment advice.
