West Midlands Mental Health Commissioning Network

April 26th 2016 The Manor Hotel, Meriden

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

The conference will be chaired by Dr Liz England, GP and Mental Health Clinical Lead, Sandwell and West Birmingham CCG and RCGP Mental Health Clinical and Commissioning Lead on Tuesday 26th April, with a focus on:

  • Adult ADHD & Co-Morbidity with other adult Mental Health Conditions
  • Setting ambitious goals for patients with depression - focussing on a fully functional recovery as KPI

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.
