Right Here, Right Now: CQC publish report on people’s experience of care during a mental health crisis

NHS Confederation, 12 June 2015

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) have launched a report which shows that there are variations in the help, care and support available to people in crisis and that a person’s experience depends not only on where they live, but what part of the system they come into contact with.  As a signatory to the Concordat, CQC committed to providing a national overview on crisis care. The CQC carried out a thematic review of the quality, safety and effectiveness of care provided to people experiencing a mental health crisis by regulated providers and providers/ agencies with responsibility for operating the Mental Health Act 1983.  This report provides a summary of the findings of this review as well as recommendations.
