Service brief for Radernie rehabilitation and community-based care (third sector service)
Created: 08/08/2022, Updated: 08/09/2022
Radernie Low Secure Unit, Stratheden Hospital is aiming to commission a grant-funded service, that primarily involves in-reach support from a third sector/voluntary sector service, to support patients to achieve their longer-term rehabilitation needs and subsequent transfer of care to community-based settings.
Patients within Radernie Ward would benefit greatly from increased 1:1 (Staff : Patient Ratio) and 2:1 support for structured social activities both within and out with the clinical area as this would greatly enhance community engagement.
The provider and social care staff would be key partners with the clinical team in beginning to develop an integrated approach to supporting rehabilitation for Fife Health and Social Care Partnership's forensic patients. The Partnership's Mental Health services have the ambition that, with third sector partners, they can develop innovative and creative approaches which will enhance the care and support of people with mental health needs in Fife.
A service brief, detailing the vision and requirements for the service, can be found here.
The service will be provided and funded for 1 year. The service will be agreed upon through a Service Level Agreement based on the Service Brief and will be monitored and evaluated by the Health & Social Care Quality Assurance/Contracts Team.
