The new national Health and Care Bill received Royal Assent on 28 April, enacting the most significant new health legislation in England in a decade. The Bill sets out the Government’s ambition to help deliver more joined-up health and social care at System and Place level to improve outcomes for people and make best use of public resources. It establishes Integrated Care Systems (ICS) as statutory bodies, focusing on improving health outcomes, reducing health inequalities, enhancing NHS productivity and helping the NHS to support the broader social and economic development of local communities.
Working in partnership
Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health NHS Trust and Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust are working together in partnership to improve local mental healthcare and mental health services for people across North Central London. Our two Trusts are key parts of the new North Central London ICS which formally comes into being on 1 July 2022, replacing the North Central London Clinical Commissioning Group.

A short animation from The King's Fund which can be viewed by clicking here shows how the NHS now works at North Central London ‘System’ level and at borough ‘Place’ level and is provided to help patients, carers, staff and members of the public understand these changes and how they will help us in working with our NHS, local authority and voluntary sector partners to deliver improved, more joined up, care for local people.

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.
