South West Mental Health Commissioning Network

July 12th 2016 Holiday Inn Taunton M5 J25

Further to the continued success of the regional Mental Health Commissioning Networks, we are delighted to announce we are holding a sixth South West event.

The conference will once again be chaired by Dr Alison Battersby, Consultant Psychiatrist and Addiction Specialist, Mount Gould Hospital, Plymouth, on Tuesday 12th July with a focus on:

  • Setting ambitious goals for patients with depression - with a recovery focus
  • ADHD in adults - an opportunity for integrated commissioning

The aim of the networks is to bring together like minded people from primary and secondary care, and associated organisations involved in the commissioning and delivery of services to care for and support patients with mental health conditions. This provides a platform for active discussion and exchange of ideas to cope with the commissioning challenges encountered in mental health in a more integrated way.

Full agenda to follow. Contact the NHiS Events Team for more information.

This meeting has been sponsored and supported financially by a Lundbeck Otsuka Alliance & Shire Ltd
