KARL posted an article in HealthThe 24-7 Control Room Triage Service will be delivered by North West Boroughs Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust and Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust, working in partnership with Greater Manchester Police. It will ultimately help to reduce demand on emergency services. Launching in August, the service will see trained mental health professionals based at the Clayton Brook communications centre, assessing incidents relating to mental health and providing advice and support to police staff, to help avoid unnecessary deployments of police officers. Mental health staff will also provide expert clinical advice to police officers through telephone or video conferencing, supporting them to make the right decisions when responding to incidents involving people who are experiencing mental health problems. The new service has been commissioned by Greater Manchester Combined Authority and the 10 NHS clinical commissioning groups in Greater Manchester.
