What does Covid-19 mean for Approved Mental Health Professional services?

The current arrangements to mitigate the effects of the Covid-19 virus have substantial implications for local Approved Mental Health Professional services, and many AMHPs have many questions and concerns about this issue. 

Coronavirus Bill

We have now seen the publishing of the Coronavirus Bill to support public services in their response to Coronavirus and also a letter from Sir Simon Stevens to NHS Trusts and CCGs about their response to Covid-19.

We will be working together to try and provide information and support to local areas and to answer questions as well as we can. Join the panel:

  • Ruth Allen – CEO BASW
  • Claire Barcham – PPEG Mental Health Chair BASW
  • Steve Chamberlain – AMHP Leads Group
  • Mark Trewin – MHSW Lead, office of the Chief Social Worker, DHSC
