The PT SMI clinical network is being created in response to a government directive which calls for the increase of availability for PT in SMI patients. The illnesses currently under focus are personality disorders, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and psychosis.

A baseline exercise to plot the current availability of psychological therapies for these SMIs will be undertaken across the country and the result collated. NHS England will then draw up the framework for the change to take place. It is expected that the pilot will highlight gaps in services that need to be filled and current training and staffing needs. Money has been allocated from government resources for this expansion and as a start; psychological therapies training is being made available to the CMHTs for the first time.

The purpose of the PT SMI network is to look at the needs of people with SMIs in the East of England region and drive the direction of change that will be needed to accomplish the directive.

We are aiming to create the network with participants from all the East of England CMHTs and the directors and senior staff from psychology in secondary care services, plus anyone who may have input into delivering therapy to people with SMIs such as Eastern universities and HEE. It will also be important to have GP, Service Users and CCG representation.

This networking event will discuss updates from the baseline exercise, HEE training and brainstorm prospects of regional supervisors.
