- Liaison Psychiatry: the value of mental health in physical health settings
As part of the five year forward view for mental health, the roll-out of ‘core 24’ liaison psychiatry across the NHS has been identified as a priority for both ensuring high quality mental health crisis services, as well as for alleviating the mental health service pressures in acute care. CQC will soon start inspecting for the quality of mental health care in acute settings. In places where it has been implemented in the NHS, the RAID model has been found to deliver £2-4 savings for every £1 invested. The impact of ‘medically unexplained symptoms’ is also a growing focus of demand for NHS services, which are estimated to cost as much as 10% of the NHS spend on working age adults, and liaison psychiatry has been found to assist with the pressures in secondary care that arise from patients with MUS. This session will look at the growing importance of liaison psychiatry and how we can support its expansion across the NHS.
