Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (CWP) provide a wide range of community and inpatient, physical, all-age disability, and mental health care services. The Trust also provide care to a specific cohort of patients who have been defined as having complex mental health needs. This is a broad term used to describe patients who currently receive a package of care commissioned by NHS Cheshire CCG either in an inpatient or community setting, as well as new referrals into the NHS continuing healthcare service who are eligible for NHS funding. This includes patients who are detained under Section 17 of the Mental Health Act or Section 117 aftercare, or who are out of scope, have learning disabilities, are children, those living with dementia who do not have complex, or specialist needs, those with acquired brain injuries and those with physical disabilities.
Mental health services for adults, as they are currently configured, have been designed to provide predominantly community-based interventions. It has long been recognised that patients with complex mental health needs cannot be adequately supported within standard service delivery models, resulting in a pressing need to consider the best models for this group of people. There is a paucity of information on the experiences of the service users themselves, particularly of those with complex presentations. The present study aimed to develop a profile of service users with complex mental health needs and provide a detailed exploration of their clinical histories.
