Local mental health service scoops regional award

Published on: 14th June 2022

Lincolnshire’s Children and Young People Complex Needs Service has been recognised in the 2022 NHS Parliamentary Awards having been announced as the regional champion in the excellence in mental healthcare category.

The NHS Parliamentary awards rightly honour those who continue to make a huge contribution to our country, before, during and after COVID-19.

Regional champions have been selected by panels of senior regional NHS representatives for their dedication to the health service and to people they care for in their communities

The Children and Young People Complex Needs Service works as an integrated partnership between Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (LPFT), Lincolnshire County Council (Children Services) and other partner agencies such as education and the criminal justice system, providing holistic support to young people who are at risk of homelessness, criminalisation, or exploitation.

Dr Nicola Silvester, Clinical and Strategic Lead for the Children and Young People Complex Needs Service, said:

“We are thrilled to have been named as the regional champion in this award, recognising the important role that the service plays in overcoming the challenges of segregated working, where children risk falling between the gaps and losing access to the right services.

“The team is supported by an integrated network of specialists from health, education, housing and criminal justice services to ensure that the right support is provided, at the right time, by the right worker.”

The service will now go head-to-head with other regional winners from across the country to be judged by a national panel made up of senior leaders representing staff and patients, for the chance to win the prestigious national award.

The awards will be presented at a special ceremony in the House of Commons on 6 July 2022, the day after the NHS’s 74th birthday.

Everyone at LPFT wishes the team the best of luck at the award ceremony in London next month!
