At the request of local commissioners we have been undertaking a ‘deep dive’ into Mental Health Emergency Department attendance data.
Examples of data that has been looked at include…
The age and gender of people attending
Days of the week and times that people attend
Mode of arrival
Primary investigations and treatments received
Patterns in mental health related admissions
Exploring this data has allowed commissioners and clinicians to understand what is happening in their local area, enabling the exploration and development of new care models.
