  • Community transformation bid: they will be extending the Primary Care Network approach across Surrey and want to have focus groups to look at how this can be implemented.

  • Crisis care transformation: this is looking at the Home Treatment Team having more wrap around support particularly out of hours.  Also looking at 111 and how this links in with the SPA (Single Point of Access) and conversations around how to provide a more streamlined process for those calling 111 in crisis.  Work will also take place with Georgina Foulds looking at safe havens across the Surrey patch and also the Crisis Overnight Support service; a steering group is planned and will seek IMHN support.

  • Perinatal service: currently offering psychological therapies and the plan is to increase the provision of therapeutic interventions.
