Service description

We are a team of mental health professionals based at Springfield Road Health Centre in Leicester providing a service to a number of GP practices across the city. We provide assessment, intervention and support to people who have long-term physical health conditions that impact negatively on their mental health.

You will have been referred to our service by your GP or healthcare professional who will have provided us with some initial information regarding your current situation. We will carry out an initial mental health assessment either in your own home or at another venue of your choice, for example at your GP surgery. However if you prefer, an assessment can be provided by telephone or video link.

We aim to provide you with a high standard of care and a quality service, embracing our Trust values of compassion, integrity, respect and trust. In return we would expect to be treated likewise.

The purpose of the assessment is to ensure we develop a plan together based around your identified needs. It can be helpful if you have a relative or friend present at the time of assessment.

Once we have agreed your care plan with you, we will then discuss how best we can support you to achieve your optimum wellbeing. This could be by a mental health nurse, occupational therapist or health care support worker (mental health recovery worker).

The team will only be involved with you on a short-term basis. The length of time will vary from person to person dependent on need. This will be discussed with you regularly by your lead professional.
