Crisis Care Concordat
London St Surgery will provide a same day response service to those experiencing a mental health crisis and support better access to appropriate services. We offer same day urgent consultations in response to any mental health crisis.
Our GPs work in collaboration with patients and carers in the community to prevent mental health crisis, and offer support to better manage relapses before they become crises
As responsible clinicians to our patients we ensure that all relevant information are shared amongst other emergency service and urgent care mental health teams
We refer to CMHT & the Crisis Team
We support mental health service users to access social support services and refer to substance misuse services to address drug and alcohol problems.
We continually review our response & amend if local arrangements change
We work to improve the interface between Primary and Secondary care . Regular face to face contact between primary care and secondary care mental health teams enables better working relationship & to this end we hold regular meetings at the practice with Consultant Psychiatrist from Prospect Park Hospital.
