Early intervention in psychosis access and waiting time standard

NHS England has published guidance to support improvements for people experiencing first episode psychosis, one of the key mental health access and waiting time standard areas.

The guidance, a joint publication with the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), aims to support ongoing local implementation of the standard by CCG commissioners and mental health providers, working with service users and their families, carers and other partners. There is also a resources pack.
