How our solutions can help improve CAMHS in your area: As an organisation, we recognise that the system between primary, community, acute care etc. is very silo based. The Consultant Connect Mental Health Advice & Guidance solution helps to breakdown this silo by connecting GPs to local Mental Health specialists on the Phone. This results in patients getting quicker specialist advice, GPs accessing Advice & Guidance immediately and delivering the right care for their patients first time, consultants and hospitals seeing a reduction in unnecessary referrals and CCGs saving money by not paying for unnecessary referrals and delivering a better service for patients.
