Two C&I projects have been shortlisted for prestigious awards by the Health Service Journal (HSL).
The Mental Health Crisis Assessment Service (MHCAS) that C&I set up as part of our response to the pandemic has been shortlisted for an HSJ Mental Health Innovation Award.
Our Veterans’ Service has been shortlisted for the Military and Civilian Health Partnership, for its new High Intensity Service (HIS).
These are prestigious annual awards and being shortlisted is a testament to the work and commitment of their staff. Congratulations to both teams and good luck for the awards ceremony on 17 March!
Our 24-hour Mental Health Crisis Assessment Service, at St Pancras Hospital, sees people in need of care so that they do not have to go to a hospital emergency department unless they have an urgent medical need.
Emergency departments have been under unprecedented pressure due to COVID-19. We are urging people in mental health crisis to telephone our 24/7 crisis line on 020 3317 6333 or contact their usual community mental health team to be referred to this service.
Nurses and doctors from our liaison and crisis teams will be at the service to treat people and refer them to the best service to meet their needs.
The new mental High Intensity Service for all ex-armed forces personnel in need of urgent care and treatment enhances, and works alongside, existing crisis and in-patient services addressing mental and social vulnerabilities that contribute to pushing people into crisis.
The pan-London High Intensity Service (HIS), has been commissioned by NHS England, and involves partnerships with the STOLL Foundation, Walking With The Wounded and the Ripple Pond to deliver a 22 month Pathfinders Programme.
C&I is working collaboratively across all 32 London boroughs, with other mental health trusts, NHS emergency services, public sector organisations and partners from the voluntary, community and social enterprise sectors to deliver this innovative support model for veterans and their families.

In an emergency
C&I has moved the service we normally offer in emergency departments to our 24-hour Mental Health Crisis Assessment Service, at St Pancras Hospital. The service will see people in need of urgent care so that they do not have to go to a hospital emergency department unless they have an urgent medical need. Emergency departments are under unprecedented pressure due to COVID-19 – the illness caused by coronavirus. We are urging people in mental health crisis to telephone our 24/7 crisis line on 0800 917 3333 or contact their usual community mental health team. If service users attend the 24-hour Mental Health Crisis Assessment Service in person we will see you but we urge you to contact the crisis line in advance for advice to ensure you are only leaving home when absolutely necessary.
