NHS RightCare Mental Health and Dementia packs now available

NHS RightCare has published new data packs for a range of mental health and dementia services for each CCG.

The packs are split into stages along a mental health pathway, for example Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) and enable local health economies to compare their performance with their ten most similar CCGs.

The intention of these pathways is not to provide a definitive view, but to help commissioners explore potential opportunities to improve the value and utilisation of resources.

The packs contain a number of new indicators, not included in previous packs, and are shown as charts throughout.  They also include information relating to some of the key priority groups identified in the Five Year Forward View for Mental Health along with best practice case studies from around the country.

If you have any questions about the packs or require any further information or support you can email the Commissioning for Value support team direct at: england.healthinvestmentnetwork@nhs.net.
