Level Up - Young people and families, Cheshire and Merseyside, Provider Collaborative
Young people and families, Cheshire and Merseyside NHS-Led Provider Collaborative ‘Level Up’ went live Friday 1 October.
The innovative model for designing and delivering specialised mental is a partnership made up of a variety of NHS and independent sector providers who are working together to drive innovation and creativity in offering truly person-centred care.
- NHS Lead: Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust
- NHS Providers: Alder Hey Children's NHS Foundation Trust, Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust
- Independent Sector Providers: Cygnet Health Care and Priory Healthcare
NHS-Led Provider Collaboratives will also bring much needed focus on tackling inequalities for their local population and increasing the voice of lived experience in improving the quality of care provided.
Dr Fiona Pender, Level Up Strategic Clinical Advisor, said: “The launch of Level Up for Cheshire and Merseyside is really exciting as we’re now able to start sharing more details about the work we’ve been doing with partners around our new care model.
“The new model is about providing care closer to home and ensuring the care and treatment they would have received in hospital that they’ll get in the community.
“Level Up is focused on ensuring that all services across Cheshire and Merseyside providing Tier 4 Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services are working closely together to provide the best possible outcome to young people who access the services and their families.”
“The name and identity has been co-produced with Young People and the Provider Collaborative will continue to engage with young people and families to ensure they are involved in every step of the Provider Collaborative. To help ensure this, Level Up is working with Young Minds and Inspire, Motivate, Overcome (IMO), to inform our experts by experience programme.”
