Integrated Care Pathways in Mental Health

Jo Fryer and Emma Metcalf explain what Integrated Care Pathways are and how these are being developed at Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (LYPFT):

Hi there, the trust is developing pathways that set out minimum standards of what people should expect and receive during their care. We thought it would be useful to outline work done so far, and what we are doing next. Below is some information that will hopefully be useful: 

What is an Integrated Care Pathway (ICP)?

An Integrated Care Pathway:

  • maps what should be done, when and by whom
  • sets a minimum standard of care
  • incorporates relevant guidelines, standards and protocols

Why have LYPFT developed ICP’s?

ICP’s identify:

  • the right people
  • doing the right things
  • in the right order
  • at the right time
  • in the right place

all with the attention to the individuals journey.

They also reduce unnecessary duplication and variation and are outcome and wellbeing / recovery focussed.

The trust has developed a ‘Core’ ICP that builds upon the information gathered at the assessment.  Areas of need anyone may experience regardless of ‘diagnosis’ will help develop individual care plans; other areas of need may include:

  • Mental health and/or Learning Difficulties
  • Physical health
  • Social, Occupational & Vocational
  • Medication
  • Discharge planning
  • Carers and Family interventions
  • Finances
  • Housing
  • Supporting and Safeguarding children
  • Safeguarding adults
  • Engagement
  • Advocacy
  • Diversity
  • Safety & Risk
  • Advanced decisions
  • Substance Use
  • Mental Health Act
  • Mental Capacity Act

In addition to these, specific needs based interventions describe the specific, expert interventions recommended by NICE and other best practice guidance for people with specific needs around Cognitive Impairment / Dementia, Psychosis and Common Mental Health issues.

We are currently working on how we can make the information meaningful and accessible for all and the best way of doing this eg the Trust web site. We will also be undertaking consultations with people who use our services.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and we hope you found it a useful introduction to ICP’s.

If you have any comments or questions please feel free to post them on here or email planningcarelypft@nhs.net
