Clinicians from Adult Eating Disorders, CAMHS and Forensic services - including the independent sector - came together to start developing quality monitoring, measuring and reporting standards and a framework for the new responsibilities and accountabilities for care quality SLP has taken on from NHSE Specialist Commissioning through Provider Collaboratives. 

The SLP Trusts continue to deliver transformational patient care programmes together, for Forensic (Adult Secure), CAMHS (Tier 4) and Adult Eating Disorders (AED) specialist services, as Provider Collaboratives. Building on the innovation and partnership working of SLP New Care Models programmes, recent developments include:

  • A new Single Point of Referral to SLP Trusts’ AED inpatient care to help ensure consistent, rapid and equal access to the right care, also benefiting referrers including commissioners and clinicians from outside South London
  • Our Forensic programme is introducing innovative VR (Virtual Reality)-based technology enabling service users to be trained in motor vehicle repairs, supporting their future employability and return to the workplace.

More than £400 million commissioning budgets to develop and improve specialist services for local people were devolved to the SLP Trusts as our three new Provider Collaboratives (PCs) went live. 

The ‘Fast Track’ SLP Provider Collaboratives for Forensic (Adult Secure), CAMHS (Tier 4) and Adult Eating Disorders represent three of just nine launched across England – highlighting the strength of our established partnership working, and putting us at the forefront of implementing new national NHS England policy. 

The launch also reflects the impact of our joint Forensic and CAMHS New Care Models programmes, with the three Trusts working together in new ways to transform care, experience and outcomes for hundreds of patients. This partnership working culture - with a focus on improving patient outcomes - has enabled teams to deliver transformational changes, bringing care closer to home, in better environments, and fewer inpatient admissions. 

The new policy and devolved budgets allow us to take decisions locally about how to develop and invest in services based on South London population health needs, through a clinically-led approach, with services co-designed with patients and partner organisations.
