Description

Scope Liaison psychiatry is the interface between physical and psychological health. It provides psychiatric treatment to patients attending general hospitals, whether they attend out-patient clinics, accident & emergency departments or are admitted to in-patient wards. There is now abundant evidence that medical and surgical patients have a high prevalence of psychiatric disorder which can be effectively treated with psychological or pharmacological methods. Liaison Psychiatry suggests that every NHS hospital should have such a service as standard and that liaison psychiatry services can save an average hospital millions of pounds per year by reducing the number and length of admissions to inpatient beds. HEE is looking to assess the current service provision of Liaison Psychiatry across England in each acute setting. Tenders are welcome from all providers who understand Liaison Psychiatry and are able to work closely with acute hospitals in ascertaining service levels for patients of all ages. For a thorough assessment of service provision and to enable accurate workforce planning, it is essential a high response rate of over 90% is achieved. Objectives 1. To conduct a nationwide survey to identify Liaison Psychiatry Teams, their composition and the level of service provided. 2. Provide a written report providing a detailed assessment of the current service provision of Liaison Psychiatry in England.
