New pioneering integrated health services start in Bristol
From 1 October Bristol will have a range of innovative new
mental health services, provided by a partnership of nearly 20
expert providers, being phased in.
Working under the banner of Bristol Mental Health will be a broad
range of services provided by organisations chosen by Bristol
Clinical Commissioning Group for their expertise and experience in
delivering high quality mental health care and support.
This is a significant day for the biggest CCG retendering exercise
which has redesigned services and selected organisations to provide
these new services. More than 1,000 people have been involved in
the consultation over plans for the new mental health services, and
more than 70 service users, carers, GPs and other clinicians have
been involved in designing the new services and evaluating the bids
for the services, which will cost around £25 million a year.
