The next Impact co-production event will be held on 13 June at Trent Vineyard in Nottingham and will focus on transitions through secure services. There will be representation from both the NHS England national team as well as the regional team and we hope to have contributions from a number of provider organisations.
The day will also feature a workshop, table top discussions, service user and carer perspectives as well as a panel Q and A session. This is a great opportunity to get involved and shape future service delivery for secure care in the East Midlands.
The aim of Impact (East Midlands Adult Secure Care Services) is to provide better support in the community and reduce reliance on inpatient services to achieve improved outcomes for service users and their families. Secure beds and specialist placements are often many miles away from the person’s home and family. Impact wants to provide care closer to home and reduce admissions to inpatient services. Where it is necessary for someone to be treated as an inpatient, the aim is for their length of stay to be shorter.
Better pathways of care where different services work more closely together will be developed as well as improved community infrastructures through partnership working including third and voluntary sectors and non-NHS services
