A digital place for people who access services, carers, staff and partner agencies, to share ideas around care co-ordination & care planning in mental health

People receiving care, support and treatment from Leeds and York Partnerships Foundation Trust (LYPFT) should have a care plan and this should be reviewed regularly. Care may be arranged through ‘Care Programme Approach (CPA)’  or through ‘Standard Care Plan’ if needs are more straightforward.

LYPFT sent out a brief questionnaire to people on CPA to find out what their experience of their review was; you can read a bit more about the questionnaire here.

The results from the questionnaire, the full report can be found here:final report

  • People being offered or given a copy of their care plan was 54.5%.
  • Understanding what is in the care plan, being involved in agreeing the goals and being aware that other people could be involved in the review are areas identified for improvement.
  • Areas where the results should be celebrated are that people are aware of who their care coordinator is, that they were asked how they were feeling, that they had their say and that they found the review overall helpful.
  • Results from 2013 to 2014 are overall improving.
  •  The response rate to the questionnaire was lower than anticipated at just over 7%.

In response to the questionnaire results LYPFT are focusing training on improving service user involvement in planning care. There are monthly awareness sessions across Leeds and York – dates for these are available here; they are open to people accessing services and carers as well as members of staff across LYPFT and partner organisations. The Planning Care Workplan Implementation Group are tasked with overseeing LYPFT activity in relation to planning care – you can find out more about this group here.

Many thanks to those of you who participated in completing the questionnaires.
