Talking Therapies in Bristol (IAPT) presentation

Recommissioning a new model of a Primary Mental Health service

 Moving towards a Primary Mental Health Service model – why?

  •  Current IAPT service contract due for renewal
  •  Feedback from service users, providers and professionals suggests changes could be made to the current model
    –More robust assessment
    –More flexibility around treatments
    –Shorter waiting times for treatment
  •  National IAPT targets are not being met by the current Bristol service
  •  We had to find a way to deal with a wide range of complexity of people referring in to the service
