After many years working for C&I, Peter Kane, Divisional Director for SMS services, is taking a well-earned retirement. Peter, who is pictured receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award at our Star of the Year Awards in 2019, finishes work on 21 January and then takes some leave before officially starting his retirement.
Peter will be well known to many in the organisation and we’re sure that staff will want to send their own messages to Peter. His sense of humour, pragmatism, and above all his compassion for staff and service users have been great strengths and his leadership and support in the division, and in other previous roles, will be greatly missed. In recognition of Peter’s years of service and devotion to Substance Misuse Services he was awarded the freedom of the City of London in 2014. In recent years, Peter has also developed a passion for baking and many service users and colleagues throughout the Trust have enjoyed the results. He has kept staff morale up by supplying cakes, bread and cookies baked with love for everyone to enjoy. We wish Peter good health and all the very best in his well-earned retirement.

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.
