II.1.4)Short description:

 

NHS Grampian is looking to establish a Tier 1 service that will improve individual mental health and wellbeing through timely access to appropriate services. This service will complement the existing Psychological Therapy service by establishing 4 Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner (PWP) posts offering Tier 1 high volume, brief treatment packages consisting of 1-2-1 guided self-help and group-work based therapy including CBT.

This will be to provide evidence-based treatment in line with clinical treatment guidelines (NICE, the Scottish Matrix) for Tier 1 (mild) mental health problems which are diagnosable within clinical diagnostic frameworks such as ICD-10, or symptoms which present as a precursor to clinically diagnosable conditions, in order to prevent their progression to more serious mental health problems.

At present no comparable service exists within Aberdeen City and so the needs of this patient group remain largely unmet or are met less appropriately within higher tiered services. This service looks to support and improve mental wellbeing and thus the quality of life of the local population by providing access to this service in the community.

The contract is for two years with the option to extend for additional two years (+1+1). See our specification for more information.
