Mental Health Market Shaping Statement and Recommissioning of Services

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Decision:

9.1

The Committee considered a report of the Director of Adult Health and Social Care setting out a proposed Market Position Statement to set out our commissioning intentions regarding support to people experiencing mental ill health in the city; proposals regarding recommissioning of prevention contracts; and a Mental Health Social Care Delivery Plan to ensure that we have robust response towards supporting people experiencing mental ill health in the City with partners.

 

 

9.2

RESOLVED UNANIMOUSLY: That the Adult Health and Social Care Policy Committee:-

 

 

 

(a) approves the Adult Health and Social Care Mental Health Delivery Plan detailed at Appendix 1 of the report;

 

 

 

(b) approves the Mental Health Market Position Statement detailed at Appendix 2;

 

 

 

(c) approves recommissioning of Mental Health Prevention Commissioning Plan detailed at Appendix 3; and

 

 

 

(d) requests that the Director of Adult Health and Social Care provides the Committee with updates on progress against the Delivery Plan on a six-monthly basis.

 

 

9.3

Reasons for Decision

 

 

The documents included in the report all seek to set out in greater detail how mental health social care will be commissioned in the future. The documents are strategic and will have a positive impact on the city and those who need support.

 

 

9.4

Alternatives Considered and Rejected

 

 

The following alternative options were considered:-

 

·       Do nothing – leave current contracts to expire. This was not adopted because it does not enable us to meet our legal duties under the Care Act.

 

·       Keep existing services. This was not chosen because it did not build on the current evidence base for the best way to begin to prevent mental ill health.
