Derbyshire Healthcare, in partnership with Derbyshire Constabulary, will be holding a launch event of a brand new mental health Street Triage service to improve the way people with a mental illness are treated in emergency situations.
The year long pilot will see mental health nurses from Derbyshire Healthcare accompany police officers to incidents in Derby where it is suspected that someone is a risk to themselves or those around them due to their mental ill health. Upon arrival at the incident the nurse may carry out an assessment or hold a brief clinical conversation with the person to make a professional opinion regarding their current health needs. Advice will then be provided if an appropriate referral into the healthcare service is needed.
To attend the launch event on Friday 31 January 2014 from 10.30am – 12.00noon at The Centre for Research & Development, Kingsway Site, Derby DE22 3LZ please contact email@example.com
