As a follow up to our Health Service Journal (HSJ) Value Award win, NHS Arden & GEM CSU was invited by HSJ to create a video about the “Coming Home” Mental Health Repatriation project.
Sally Eason, Partner – Transformation and Innovation, talks about identifying an opportunity to improve services and reduce costs by bringing mental health patients back to local providers.
Benefiting patients, providers and commissioners, this project has delivered over £12 million in cost savings to three local CCGs while providing high quality, locally based services to patients. The approach has since been expanded to cover patients with learning disabilities.
NHS Arden & GEM Commissioning Support Unit (CSU) and Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust won the Value and Improvement in Mental Health category at the 2015 Health Service Journal (HSJ) Value in Healthcare Awards.
