Journal article citation:
Health and Social Care in the Community, 5(1), January 1997, pp.40-47.
Publisher:
Wiley-Blackwell

Although community mental health teams (CMHTs) have become the main vehicle for coordinating health and social care for people with severe and long-term mental health problems, little research exists on their management. This paper reviews the available literature with reference to the wider literature on innovation and organisational behaviour and examines strategies for improving CMHT management at macro and team level. The challenges of researching the topic are described with recommendations for further research based on social constructivist theorising and triangulated methodology.

Upsetting the apple cart whilst pulling it along the road: implementing the national service framework for mental health

Authors:
PECK Edward, GROVE Bob, HOWELL Valerie
Journal article citation:
Managing Community Care, 8(2), April 2000, pp.36-44.
Publisher:
Pavilion

This article argues that the traditional approach to translating national policy into local practice, based as it is on a metaphor of organisations as machines, will not lead to effective implementation of the national service framework for mental health. Rather, the paper contends that there is need for a broader range of metaphors of organisation to be deployed in the creation of robust implementation process and suggests three-negotiated order, chaos theory and learning theory - that the authors have found of particular value.

Information, consultation or control: User involvement in mental health services in England at the turn of the century

Authors:
PECK Edward, GULLIVER Pauline, TOWEL David
Journal article citation:
Journal of Mental Health, 11(4), August 2002, pp.441-451.
Publisher:
Informa Healthcare
Place of publication:
London

A wide variety of forms of user involvement in mental health services - ranging from information through consultation to control - have arisen in England over the past 10 years. The evaluation of the creation of a joint commissioning board and a combined mental health and social care NHS Trust offered the opportunity to assess the nature and development of service user involvement in a specific English locality over a 30-month period. Data were collected using interviews with service users, senior managers and members of the joint commissioning board, a mail administered survey for staff members, and focus groups with service users, carers and staff members. Although user consultation around management and planning of services appeared to increase as a consequence of the changes, there was only one example of user control in the system, and the level of service user involvement with their own care seemed dependent on individual staff members.

Beyond the CMHT: moving mental health services forward in East Yorkshire

Authors:
ATKIN Mike, HOSTICK Chris, PECK Edward
Journal article citation:
Community Care Management and Planning, 4(2), February 1996, pp.51-57.
Publisher:
Pavillion

Recently commentators and clinicians have been challenging the robustness of the Community Mental Health Team (CMHT) model. Managers have also become increasingly sceptical about the utility of the traditional, generic CMHT which attempts to combine assessment, care planning and review with service delivery, such as crisis response, assertive outreach, continuing care and primary care liaison and counselling. This case study presents the process of outcome of a strategic review of mental health services in East Yorkshire which may look beyond the CMHT as the preferred way forward.
