Abstract

We carried out this work following a recommendation by the Crisis Care Concordat that we and the Department of Health and Social Care should look at the effectiveness of the current monitoring of AMHP services.

A previous review found wide variation in the way AMHP services are provided across the country. It recommended further work to support local services and national monitoring should be completed to provide evidence in this area and identify future improvements.
