This development forms part of our wider plan to transform mental health services which has already seen the introduction of a new primary care mental health service, has established a 24/7 acute liaison services, and improved crisis services.

The additional investment this year in year 1 has allowed us to introduce numerous new roles into the Recovery Focussed Team such as 8b Senior Psychological Professionals for both the psychosis and non-psychosis pathways.
