Milton Keynes annual report published

    Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust has published its first annual review of its services across Milton Keynes.

    The report looks back at how its services performed across the area between 2016 and 2017, on new developments and also outlines its plans for 2017 to 2018, which include working closely with other primary and secondary care providers across Milton Keynes, Bedfordshire and Luton as part of the BLMK STP (Sustainability and Transformation Plans).

    Divisional Director Graeme Caul said: "At CNWL we are incredibly proud of the work we do in supporting our resident families, patients and carers across Milton Keynes. It is with great pleasure that I present the first annual review of 2016-17 to show you some of our highlights from the last year."

    New developments have been:

    ·                  The Rapid Response service, a team offering care for people at home IAPT (Talking Therapies) so a hospital admission is not needed.

    ·                  Following a successful pilot in 2015/16, the High Impact Team was successful in the bid to expand its work across Milton Keynes; the team supports care home residents to prevent them being admitted to hospital.

    ·                  The Perinatal service, which offers assessment and management for pregnant and postnatal women experiencing mental health difficulties.

    ·                  Investment in a new Primary Care Plus Mental Health Service, which provides mental health advice and support to four GP practices.

    ·                  New investment to expand hospital liaison mental health services that strengthens the urgent care pathway for people experiencing mental health difficulties.

    ·                  The Campbell Centre achieved Accreditation for Inpatient Mental Health Services (AIMS) - a recognised quality standard for Inpatient Wards - Working-Age Adults.

    ·                  Development of peer support workers programme at the Campbell Centre, providing professionals with advice and support from staff with lived experience of mental health.

    ·                  CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services) have improved how they work and have relocated to a single base on the Milton Keynes hospital campus.

    ·                  The community paediatric service has also changed the way it runs, meaning that it can see more patients.

    ·                  Universal Children's Services have continued to develop over the course of the last year, implementing new and innovative programmes to meet the needs of our caseloads.

    ·                  Urgent care pathway, including winning a bid to set up the Home Liaison Team.
