Training for CCGs, PCNs and practices on how to deliver Practise Hope themselves to improve their service to better support children and young people, based on the NHS PACEsetter model.
This course has been developed specifically to support young people (10-25) to look out for each other and practice self-care. The content was originally developed to be delivered face to face, however it has now transitioned to online due to the Coronavirus restrictions.
This course is facilitated by Mind in local communities who support the delivery of the training and follow up support.
Health Education England provided £200,000 funding to run the 18 month pilot at 27 GP practices in Kent, Sussex and Surrey. Ann Feloy, founder of Olly's Future in memory of her son Oliver, was Patients Carer Lead working with Dr Sam Fraser, Sussex Partnership Trust and three local Mind offices at Brighton and Hove, Dartford and Kingston, Surrey.
Cost will be advised, based on requirements.
The next phase will be to embed the initiative in other areas of the country through providing training, as above, to surgeries on how to run the Practise Hope themselves, providing them with all the surveys, action plans, focus group learning and materials.
Findings for this pilot, which finishes at the end of September, will be published soon.
