The Clinical Treatment Team is part of the Mental Health Network and covers the whole of Lancashire and South Cumbria.
All Service users on Depot, Clozapine or Lithium medications (where appropriate) are eligible for care by the Clinical Treatment Team as long as they are under the care of the community mental health teams.
By local agreement or arrangement, learning disabilities, older adult, early intervention service and forensic services may access clinics, however funding and resources may need to be considered in this scenario.
Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) will be provided to service users for whom this treatment is prescribed either as inpatients or as out patients (where appropriate).
At times other trusts may wish to access the ECT service however on these occasions funding and capacity needs to be considered.
Referrals to the Team
Referrals to the team will come from community mental health teams (CMHTs) or other services by agreement.
