Issue details

Specialist Mental Health Care and Support for Adults (18-64)

This item relates to the commissioning of the following specialist services for adults with complex mental ill health aged 18-64:
• Independence at home services (home / domiciliary care, outreach, floating support)
• Supported living (any scheme where housing, support and sometimes care services are provided as an integrated package)
• Specialist residential care homes.

Our recommendation is to undertake a procurement exercise in order to identify a partner (or more than one partner) to work with us (and each other) to develop a whole system approach to the commissioning of the services in scope. Our goal is to form a consortium.

The recommended procurement is a key action in our draft strategic mental health commissioning intentions and will ensure good alignment with the transformation of community mental health services moving forwards.
