Public consultation on specialist mental health continuing care services

Over the last few months SLaM and NHS Lewisham Clinical Commissioning Group (LCCG) have been reviewing the care that is provided to older people with long-term specialist mental health needs.

The proposed service change is to close the Inglemere Specialist Care Unit in Lewisham and transfer patients to more appropriate care in nursing and care homes in neighbouring boroughs.

The public consultation paper here provides information and explains the reasons for the proposed service change.
