MH040 - PATIENTS AND MENTAL HEALTH CARE TEAMS
The care or assessment within a MENTAL HEALTH CARE SPELL is provided by a MENTAL HEALTH CARE TEAM, which may be multidisciplinary and involve both NHS and non-NHS agencies, for example Social Services of a Local Authority. A MENTAL HEALTH CARE TEAM is part of a FUNCTIONAL GROUP within an ORGANISATION.
A MENTAL HEALTH CARE TEAM comprises PERSONS who are MENTAL HEALTH CARE TEAM MEMBERS and are either employed by the HEALTH CARE PROVIDER providing the specialist mental health care services, or employed by another NHS or non-NHS ORGANISATION.
PATIENTS may have SECURE ACCOMMODATION REQUIREMENTS which are periods of time when they are identified as requiring accommodation of a higher level of security, for example a high or medium security hospital.
