NHS England Veterans Mental Health Intensive Service – Market Engagement Event

 In news, updates

NHS England would like to invite providers to attend a Market Engagement Event which will inform the market of the intentions to procure Veterans Mental Health Intensive Service Nationally.

In 2017 NHS England Commissioned the veterans’ mental health Transition Intervention and Liaison service (TIL) following publication of the engagement work in relation to veterans mental health services.
TIL services provide across England increased access and treatment for armed forces personnel approaching discharge and veterans with mental health difficulties.
There are three elements to TILs – a transition service for those leaving the armed forces, an intervention service for veterans who have more complex presentations and would benefit from being seen by a clinician with expert understanding of armed forces life and culture; and a liaison service for those who do not have complex presentations but would benefit from treatment and support.

Building on the VMH – TIL service the VMH Intensive Service (VMH – IS) will provide an enhanced service for veterans with complex mental health problems that are attributable to military service, which have not been resolved earlier in the care / support pathway and require an intensive and assertive multi-disciplinary package of clinical and social interventions where a military culturally sensitive approach would assist the rapport and therapeutic outcomes for the patient. The service will focus on those veterans who have complex mental health problems including PTSD.
The opportunity will be open to the entire market.

It is intended that a procurement process will commence in August with a view for the services to commence on the 1st April 2018.

The Market Engagement stage will be conducted in two phases and we have supplied the draft specification along with this advert for early access:
