Contextual Data Questionnaire

What is HTAS?

  • HTAS is an initiative from the Royal College of Psychiatrists Centre for Quality Improvement.  It aims to help crisis resolution and home treatment teams in the UK to focus on and improve quality, as well as awarding accreditation to services that meet sufficient standards.


  • The standards have been developed in conjunction with a panel of experts in home treatment services. The standards were piloted in 2012 with 17 teams and were revised further following this phase. The new HTAS Standards were published in February 2013, building on the Pilot Standards.


  • The UK-wide HTAS programme launched in March 2013 and registrations for new members are taken throughout the year.

Who can join? 

If you work in a UK crisis resolution or home treatment team (as described below), then you are eligible to join the programme. 

 

The main functions of these teams are that they:

  • provide rapid, intensive support for people with acute mental health problems;
  • gatekeep acute inpatient admissions;
  • facilitate early discharge from acute inpatient wards.

How much does it cost?

The programme runs entirely on subscription fees from our members. The annual fee for this programme is £1800 + VAT per year. A 10% discount is available for services that purchase a three year membership:

  • 1 year = £1800 + VAT
  • 3 years = £4860 + VAT (10% discount)

The College Centre for Quality Improvement is cost-neutral, so the majority of your subscription fee goes towards the cost of your peer review visit and other benefits such as free training and forum events; the rest is used in administration of the process.
