The group identifies three sets of issues:
- Individual professional issues (e.g. terms and conditions of social work team)
- Joint working between the different health and social care professions (e.g. referral and care coordination processes and pooling of staffing budgets)
- Implementing the wider recovery hub (including setting the overall vision and defining the role of third sector organisations)
We’ve decided that the individual professional issues should be addressed within the line management structure.
The community mental health team management group will deal with the joint working issues, but their work will be informed by the overall vision for the recovery hub.
The vision should actively engage people with mental health problems, family carers and third sector organisations.
