Evaluation of Buckinghamshire Community Mental Health Framework Project
Mixed methods evaluation of early implementer of the NHS England Community Mental Health Framework.
The Community Mental Health Framework for Adults and Older Adults (CMHF) establishes new models of "integrated, personalised, place-based and well-coordinated care" for people with severe mental illness.
In this study, we are conducting a process of evaluation of the implementation of this service in Buckinghamshire, delivered through a partnership between Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust, Buckinghamshire Council, local Primary Care Networks and voluntary sector partners.
In the mixed methods evaluation, we will conduct interviews with leadership, staff and service users and conduct secondary analysis of routinely collected data. The study will identify barriers to and enablers of change, and assessments of impact and value, generating actionable learning for commissioners and providers in Buckinghamshire and in other sites nationally who are establishing similar services in line with the CMHF. The study will also generate wider research insights into organisational change in healthcare, focusing on system flexibility, culture change and system sustainability.
