An incredibly useful insight into the factors that influence why NHS trusts choose to adopt an innovation. One of our teams (SHIPP) is profiled in the report.

All the teams on the network operate to a set of quality standards that we have devised; standards that together will ensure a consistently high quality of care, before, during and after a crisis event. This includes teams that operate independently but that are connected to the network.View document
We are currently operating 4 different models of SIM based teams.
3 employ a police officer/staff member in a specialist/dedicated/protected role (officers can do this full time or part time).
1 employs a police officer/staff member whose main role is not managing high intensity callers but who is allocated a client alongside their MH care coordinator.
e.g. a community police officer or PCSO may have a regular crisis caller living on their beat. They complete the training course with that person's MH care coordinator and then for x number of sessions a week, they jointly engage with and support the individual.
Please see the graphic for more details.
The SIM London team produced this leaflet in April 2018. It was co-produced with Service Users.
Although written for people living in London, the information applies to all teams around the UK.
The SIM model of care is supported by the NHS Innovation Accelerator Programme.
