Community Mental Health Nurse - Band 6
Our South West Provider Collaborative is a group of organisations who have come together to form a partnership which has a real impact in our region. From the Isles of Scilly to Gloucester, we cover an area of 22,000km² and a population of five million. You could help care for our communities, too.
We’re made up of a number of NHS organisations, independent sector providers, and a community interest company. In working together, we’re able to pool our specialist knowledge and resources. Together, we want to improve the mental health support available to people living all over the South West.
One of the key aims in setting up our SWPC was to make sure that people needing specialised mental health care could receive treatment closer to home, allowing their family and friends to support their recovery.
Prior to assuming responsibility for commissioning from NHS England in October 2020, 50% of patients with medium and low secure mental health care needs had to travel outside of the region for treatment. By sharing beds and pooling our resources, we've been able to reduce that figure to 15%.
Our commissioning responsibilities have since grown, and as well as Adult Secure Services, we’re now accountable for specialised Adult Eating Disorder Services and Child and Adolescent Mental Health Tier 4 Services (CAMHS).Find out more about our SWPC
