Criteria Acceptance criteria Service users aged 18 years or over who are suffering from significant mental health distress Referrals deemed appropriate by the Crisis Resolution Team Exclusion criteria Service users who are currently detained under the Mental Health Act Service users who are actively suicidal, or presenting at significant risk of life- threatening harm to themselves Service users with a recent history of aggression or violence towards others Service users with significant impairment of cognitive function (e.g. dementia) Reasonable adjustments will be made under the Equality Act and Green light principles, for people with a learning disability, to ensure not only equity of access, but also equity of outcome.
People must be able and willing to engage with their recovery in order to be accepted into the service Anyone whom presents to the CRT under the influence of either alcohol or illicit substances would not be referred at that time The service is not staffed or equipped to manage anyone who requires any form of restraint or whose history indicates that the use of instrumental aggression may lead to escalating physical aggression.
Proposed Referral Process CRT contact Crisis House to establish bed availability and to discuss the presentation and initial 72 hour care plan. CRT will establish with Richmond Fellowship staff transport arrangements i.e. transport to be arranged by RF staff or being transported by relative/friend. CRT to ensure that the relevant paperwork and information is sent/given to the Crisis House prior to or at the time of admission. CRT to provide copy of referral details, assessment and formulation, risk assessment and 72 hour care plan to Crisis House staff.
CRT will make decision to admit On completion of their assessment, the team will determine the suitability and benefits to the service user having a period of time within the Crisis House. The rationale and plan should be clear and agreed with two Richmond Fellowship staff before placement commences.

Changes to Crisis Resolution Team (CRT)
The role of the CRT
Referring to the crisis resolution team on (option 3) Referrers will be asked: 1.Do you wish to make a referral to the crisis team? 2.Do you feel your patient will require admission in the next 24 hours without involvement of the crisis team?
If the answer is no… If either question is answered as ‘No’ then the referrer will be asked to fax the community mental health team. If the patient needs to be seen urgently, the faxes will be/should be marked as ‘Urgent - to be seen within 5 working days’ Routine cases will continue to be faxed to the CMHTs as usual.
Contacting a clinician If you have a medical query between 9am and 5pm ring the community consultant in the first instance. If they are unavailable contact the on call consultant via switchboard. For non-medical queries about patients known to the team contact the relevant clinician. After 5pm ring the on call registrar. We are reviewing consultant caseloads to enable them to provide more telephone support to GPs.
