In January 2019 the National Health Service (NHS) in England launched a “Comprehensive Model of Personalised Care”, aimed at giving people more choice about – and control over – their healthcare.
In terms of mental healthcare this is clearly a step in the right direction.
NHS England say: “Personalised Care will benefit up to 2.5 million people by 2024, giving them the same choice and control over their mental and physical health that they have come to expect in every other aspect of their life. Universal personalised care: Implementing the Comprehensive Model confirms how we will do this by 2023/24. It is the action plan for the rolling out personalised care across England.”
