Our local transformation plan to improve services - 2015 to 2020
Between September 2014 and June 2015 Milton Keynes Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) in partnership with Milton Keynes Council (MKC) undertook a significant review of mental health and emotional wellbeing services in Milton Keynes for children and young people. This review took in views from a range of organisations and stakeholders, as well as feedback from over 320 young people, carers and parents. The review also compared the current services against regional and national standards.
The review covered a catchment population of 64,200 of 0-19 year olds and looked at the support provided to children, young people and their families with a wide range of mental health and emotional needs. This ranged from those who need simple advice and guidance to those who need more long term intensive care. The findings of the local review were very much the same as the national review which took place within a similar time frame.
All the findings and recommendations from the review have now been collated and published in the Local Transformation Plan. Please click on the images above to see the review, the orignial and the full five year plans which can also be found on the Milton Keynes CCG website.
Children and Young People's Mental Health & Emotional Wellbeing Review
A number of key priority themes were identified as areas for a refocus or redesign of the current service and these form the initial priorities for the local transformation plan. Over the next few years the CCG and the council will be working together on these priority areas to improve access and delivery for children, young people and their families.
The nine initial priority areas are:
1. Reduce the waiting times for the eating disorder service
2. Provide better care for children and young people with complex and challenging behaviour
3. Provide better support & care for children who have a mental health crisis and need urgent care, supporting them whilst in hospital and/or at home
4. Provide psychological support for children and young people with special needs
5. Provide training and guidance to give more people the skills and confidence to support children and young people they work with suffering from emotional difficulties
6. Provide better access to specialist mental health care for children and young people
7. Provide better care for mothers suffering poor emotional health around the time their baby is born
8. Improve care for young people who have received care outside of Milton Keynes and are now being transferred back to Milton Keynes, ensuring they have the right support locally
9. Provide early help for those suffering from psychosis
