Cheshire and Wirral Partnership Foundation Trust, Eastern Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group, South Cheshire CCG and Vale Royal CCG: Redesigning adult and older people’s mental health services

Covering the populations of Cheshire East and Vale Royal (7,000 people accessing specialist mental health services), this redesign is centred on service users, providers and commissioners working together to transform services for people severely affected by mental health problems, to improve:

  • Patient outcomes and experience; through more person-centred care, improved inpatient facilities and through a wider range of out-of-hospital services;
  • Productivity; through detailed needs analysis and shaping the workforce around people’s needs;
  • Efficiency; using resources differently to meet national standards for care and, at the same time, improving the financial position across the health economy.
