Strategic Commissioning Plan workstreams
The IJB Strategic Plan sets the strategic direction for all delegated services and provides the basis for Directions. It is a relatively high level document backed up by more detailed commissioning and delivery plans. The mental health commissioning plan will be delivered under the banner of Thrive Edinburgh, which will be Edinburgh’s all ages mental health strategy.
The plan has six workstreams: Building Resilient Communities, A Place to Live, Get Help When Needed, Closing the Inequalities Gap, Rights based Care, and Meeting Treatment Gaps. To see workstreams with subgroups/projects see here.
Mental Health and Wellbeing Public Social Partnership (PSP)
The Edinburgh Wellbeing Public Social Partnership has created locality and city wide programmes and initiatives which bring together services to support people’s mental health and wellbeing. It builds on good practice and established relationships to co-produce, test and develop innovative approaches for service delivery to improve collaboration, improve people’s experiences, and maximise locality resources. There are four locality partnership groups and three thematic groups. The PSP has a monthly newsletter, Thrive Edinburgh, to subscribe email Linda.IrvineFitzpatrick@nhslothian.scot.nhs.uk
