PERFORMANCE: The mental health foundation trust was behind at the end of January on its commitment to serve 143 new psychosis cases this year by early intervention teams, its latest performance report shows.

In January the mental health FT had served a total of 116 new cases through early intervention teams, with just two months left to the end of the financial year.

The quality measure has been rated “red” by the foundation since November.

All other compliance framework quality measures were rated “green” in the February report.

A trust spokeswoman added: “The target is an annual target and we accurately reported our progress as red. Despite that we have always and continue to forecast achievement of the target by year end. Progress since January has only reinforced that view.”
