Health commissioners are supporting proposals by the county’s mental health provider to enhance services for adults and older people.

Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust plans to enhance its crisis and home treatment service to provide 24/7 responsive care.

The plans also include a Community Rehabilitation Team for adults and enhanced community services for older people to increase the levels of intensive support provided to them.

The trust’s move follows feedback from patients and clinical evidence, which shows that people prefer to be cared for in their own homes.
