  2. Context Model Development Engagement and Commissioning IRT Evaluation Case Examples and Service User Feedback Overview

  3. Service Model

  4. Access? • Access is the term used by NTW to describe the Initial Response to Urgent and Routine requests for help. • Urgent Requests – Phase 1- (2012) • Routine Requests – Phase 2- (2014) • Integration with other routes of entry such as… • IAPT • Specialist Services • Social Care

  5. Demographics: North and South

  6. Phase 1: The case for change • Sunderland was chosen as the location for the development of a new access model following discussions with service users, carers, GPs and commissioners. • Clear issues with contacting the Crisis Team by phone as Triage saturated++ • Overnight and at peak demand times callers could wait hours for a return call from a clinician • No ready point of access for Older People or People with a significant Learning Disability seeking Urgent Advice/ Intervention • Fewer than 35% of referrals needed a Crisis Team Response • Most of the “inappropriate” calls required some form of advice/ signposting but at low risk/ acuity

  7. Large scale events- Local Authority, GP’s, Commissioners, Service Users Focussed Group Events- Service Users, GP’s, Staff Engagement

  8. Sunderland PCT facilitated and supported Initial Engagement process Recognised need for change Supported 1st year (Pilot) through imaginative use of CQUIN On basis of initial evaluation have commissioned ongoing service Ongoing development of whole-system Engagement- Commissioners

  11. Phase 1: The Model • IRT to offer 24/7 Universal telephone access for requests for urgent help. • No restrictions on who could refer • Triage and Routing over the phone- (Mental Health and other local Services) • Face to Face Triage (Rapid Response) if clear plan cannot be determined over the phone • Seven Band 6 Nurses for Telephone and Rapid Response • Five Band 3 Nurses for call handling and Rapid Response • Use of digital dictation and 3G laptops for clinical documentation • Flexible interchangeable roles and rotation between Crisis Team and IRT roles dependant on demand.

  12. Phase 1: Benefits of IRT • Quick and efficient responses to requests for help • Effective routing to the correct services in and out of NTW • Flexible and collaborative working with newly configured UCT which will focus on the work for which it is commissioned • Reduction of clinician administration burden, and freeing time to care (mainly through adoption of digital dictation) • Improving personal and clinical outcomes for people in crisis with mental ill health by reducing harm and premature mortality, improving patient safety and patient experience

  13. Evaluation-IRT in numbers • Typical weekly activity • 1500+ Incoming telephone calls • 1000 Total Contacts • 400 Home-based Treatment contacts • 50 Crisis Assessments • 100 Rapid Responses • …and growing • 90% calls answered within 15 seconds • >98% within 3 minutes (Average=9 Seconds) • >80% rapid responses achieved in under one hour

Skills are valued Spend more time Wonderful support!

  16. Service User Feedback- Word Cloud

  17. “Its because of IRT that I haven’t self harmed in four months. Before, I would self harm two or three times a week and would end up in A&E, but knowing that they are there and knowing that I’m going to get the same positive response every time means that I have been able to listen to their advice and develop coping strategies. I’m much more hopeful about my future” Service User Narrative Feedback
