East of England, NHS Specialist Mental Health, Learning Disability and Autism Provider Collaborative

NHS East of England textStarting in July 2021 and covering the East of England region, the Collaborative have established new ways of working together to create services and support our patients in a better way that brings together all organisations with the patient voice at the heart of all we do.

We are the lead commissioners for specialist mental health services, and by bringing together our clinical, managerial, and patients and carers from across the six leading NHS mental health providers in region and local independent providers across the region we can start to tackle inequalities in care and create more specialist care, closer to home by developing what we call ‘hospital at home’ type care.  This specialist care is the development of and investment in more intensive community teams that allow people to stay close to their vital support networks within their own communities.

The Collaborative consists of six providers of specialist mental health and learning disability care, including autism. Our independent sector partners also contribute significantly to the development of our services and new ways of delivery.

We commission the following three key services across our mental health and independent providers:

  • Specialised Children and young people’s mental health (CYP MHS). Inpatient services and Tier 4 community alternatives - including services for young people with an eating disorder
  • Medium and Low Secure Services for Adults with a Mental Illness and/or who have a Learning Disabilities and/or Autism
  • Specialised Mental Health Services for adults who have an eating disorder
