Extra cash to care for Lancashire's psychosis patients
10:21am Thursday 26th September 2013 in News
THE mental health trust for Lancashire will continue to lead the way in offering early intervention for patients suffering from psychosis, thanks to additional funding.
Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust’s Early Intervention Service is one of only two psychosis services in the country to offer increased access to psychological therapies in severe mental illness.
The extra funding will allow the pilot project to continue.
Dr Warren Larkin, clinical director for children and families services, said: “This is excellent news and means we can continue to work on improving access and outcomes for service users and their families.
“It’s really important the quality of care being received is monitored so that outcomes can be assessed.”
