Lewisham joint teams praised

    Lewisham’s joint community mental health teams offer a good,
    integrated and well-regarded care planning service, according to a
    report published this week by the Social Services Inspectorate.

    The report of the January inspection of the south London
    council’s adult mental health services reveals a systematic
    performance management culture, with mature partnership
    arrangements between the statutory agencies.

    Lewisham’s social care and health care directorate and the South
    London and Maudsley Mental Health NHS Trust jointly provide mental
    health services for the area.

    The says a single management arrangement for the relevant
    partner agencies should be considered, including Lambeth, Southwark
    and Lewisham Health Authority.
