Practice Guidelines for Crisis Line Response and CRHTTs - 2022

To ensure the highest quality of clinical care for patients under CRHTT services, as part of the quality improvement initiative, QN-CRHTT has undertaken a consultation, leading to the development of guidance that has received a wide range of input from mix of multidisciplinary staff including consultant psychiatrists, nurses, social workers, psychologists, commissioners and representatives from NHS England. 

Overall, this guidance intends to support practice implementation of CRHTTs. Adoption of a good quality framework that not only reflects the CRHTTs role in promoting clinical effectiveness but most importantly has a significant value in improving patient care.

Our reports summarise the data we collect from crisis resolution and home treatment teams during our review process.
