About the service

Why would someone choose the service?

  • The intensive home based treatment team is committed to listening to service user and carer feedback – we write to every service user and carer who received care from the team
  • These responses are used to further develop the team and improve practice. Examples include improvements in care planning and the production of an information leaflet stating the service offer and frequently asked questions from service users and carers
  • The latest feedback from service users and carers referenced the positive aspect of home treatment rather than inpatient care. 98% rated the service as good or better with 91% rating very good or excellent
