Decision details

Mental Health Review Programme

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


To agree changes to the way in which mental health commissioning and operational services will be delivered by Adult Social Care. To support the plans for future working with partners, providers and stakeholders and establishment of a clear professional identity for Mental Health Social Work.




That the priorities and work programme for phase 2 of the Mental Health Programme Review be approved.


Reason for decision:


Meeting our requirements under the Care Act and delivering the transformation programme for Mental Health requires significant work to reshape commissioning and operational practice as the service has not established a clear professional identity within the previous arrangements. This needs to be managed whilst also undertaking and embedding the organisational development required so that ASC Mental Health can be viewed as a key partner and contributor to the fast developing landscape of Health and social care. The phase 2 programme will enable us to achieve this.
