Statement from East London NHS Foundation Trust

  • ELFT agreed in 2019 to pilot SIM in Newham and Bedfordshire. This is an approach of service users working with mental health services and Police to improve their safety plan
  • The model review will involve the trust’s People Participation department and ensure the voice of services users are taken into account
