The Trust has been successful in its bid to provide high dependency and complex care rehabilitation services in Nottinghamshire, which are commissioned by NHS Arden and Greater East Midlands Commissioning Support Unit.
The Trust, which already provides these services in Nottinghamshire, was approved to continue the delivery of these services following a competitive tender and assessment process. The new commissioning arrangement will start on 1 April 2019.
The services, sometimes referred to as locked rehabilitation services, are for adults with learning disabilities or mental health issues who are on a section of the Mental Health Act and need a period of rehabilitation.
The Trust delivers these services at Alexander House and Bracken House rehabilitation units in Mansfield. Teams support patients through a period of recovery, allowing them to achieve their potential in physical and mental wellbeing, occupation, education, social networks and activities, and helping them to return to less restrictive community services.
Paul Smeeton, Executive Director Local Partnerships at the Trust said: “We are delighted to have been successful in our bid for the continued delivery of these services. As we have provided these services for a number of years in Nottinghamshire, we have extensive knowledge and experience in this area. We are proud of the services we provide to our patients and the support we offer to help them in their recovery.”
