Local Transformation Plan for Children and Young People’s Mental Health

Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent CCGs have published the pdf 2018 Child and Adolescent Mental Health Local Transformation Plan (1.75 MB) . This sets out our progress against the  pdf 2017 (704 KB)  and  pdf 2016 plan (371 KB)  and highlights the key areas for future development to deliver improvements in emotional wellbeing and mental health services for children and young people.

The plan has been assured by NHS England and has been approved by the Stoke-on-Trent Health and Wellbeing Board.  The plan remains subject to ratification by the Staffordshire Health and Wellbeing Board.

Our transformation plan is pan-Staffordshire (The whole of Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent, covering six Clinical Commissioning Groups and two Local Authorities.) There are common priorities, but as different localities are starting from different baselines, there are some differences in investments and progress made. Our aim will be to ensure that services are responsive to local need and that there is equitable provision across the whole area.

The Transformation Plan is based on the existing emotional wellbeing and mental health strategies for Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire. These are both titled “Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health of children and young people from birth to 18 Commissioning Strategy 2015-18”. Both strategies were finalised prior to the publication of the Future in Mind document and Transformation Plan Guidance. They were the result of significant consultation with young people, parents, clinicians and key stakeholders including schools, and received final approval through respective local governance systems (Clinical Commissioning Groups and Local Authorities).

The strategies are underpinned by robust needs assessments utilising population based epidemiological information and data from health, education and social care. There is a needs assessment of young offenders in Stoke and this is being undertaken in Staffordshire.
