Abstract

This report is an evaluation of the impact of the Rotherham, Doncaster and South Humber (RDaSH) Mental Health Liaison Service (MHLS). This service provides assessment and treatment to assist the management of adults with mental health problems. A before-and-after analysis was carried out to analyse the health service utilisation data for patients registered with the service. To provide a broader perspective, stakeholder interviews were carried out with fifteen individuals who were either directly employed by RDaSH within the liaison team or who were hospital employees and whose role brought them into contact with the work of the liaison team. They were interviewed about the impact of the service and potential opportunities for enhancement. The service was very well received but a few resolvable problems were highlighted.
