An Evaluation of the Community Veterans Mental Health Pilots
The Ministry of Defence and NHS have worked together to establish six community-based mental health services for veterans in sites across the UK. These will offer services to anyone who has served in the Forces, however long ago, and is suffering a mental health problem in consequence.
A team from the Centre for Psychological Services Research at the University of Sheffield has been commissioned to evaluate these six pilots, and will do so by monitoring their activity and that of three pre-existing services for veterans. The evaluation will take place over 2½ years and will deliver a final report in early 2011.
The Lincolnshire e-clinics pilot is planned to test the introduction of information and communications technology (ICT) into an existing primary care mental health service. A team from CPSR has been asked to evaluate the service.
