Reviewing the acute mental health pathway for Surrey & Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust

 We were commissioned jointly by the CCGs across Surrey and NE Hampshire, and the Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. We were asked to use our Sim:pathy modelling approach to review the number of mental health beds required across the area, as well as the number of sites from which those beds could be provided. Our work also looked at the configuration of associated community services, including alternatives to admission. Using our modelling tools, and in discussion with a wide range of local stakeholders, we were able to identify a range of scenarios and service changes which would enable local services to work more effectively and efficiently.”
