The mobilisation of the service is due to commence on 1st December, 2019 and will initially focus on Diabetes MDT’s, as these are better established across BSOL CCG with the service building when further LTC MD’s are developed. Active roll out will begin from 1st January 2020.
Bsol CCG have commissioned a new IAPT LTC service to cover both Birmingham and Solihull. This will be delivered by the Living Well Consortium (LWC). Our aim is embedding LWC workers in PCN MDT to offer IAPT support to patients who are suffering anxiety or depression as a result of their long term condition.
IAPT LTC Service: Notice to all practices in Solihull
This is in addition to the Core IAPT service currently provided by BSMHFT & LWC in Birmingham and CWPT in Solihull.
• Core IAPT will continue to be provided by CWPT for patients registered to Solihull GP practices. - so if CWPT therapist are providing Core IAPT services from GP practices this will continue.
• There will be no impact to the Core IAPT service in Solihull by CWPT.
• The national for IAPT LTC pilot previously delivered by CWPT has ended, so from the 1st December the Living Well Consortium will be providing IAPT LTC in Solihull.
• This is part of a phased roll out of LTC IAPT which will take place over a period of time. In parallel we will continue to expand access to core IAPT in line with the ambitions of the NHS Long Term Plan.
The service will endeavour to see patients as locally as possible. We hope the service will deliver from the surgeries and embed into the team. If not the provider will identify alternative room provision. The LWC will inform practices of the new IAPT LTC service in the near future and working closely with localities and PCN’s to over the coming months in relation to expansion of IAPT.
