Brighton and Hove Wellbeing Service

Risk Management

Patients showing high levels of risk should not be referred to us, but directly to secondary care services.

The Wellbeing Service is not able to provide treatment for patients who have the following presentations or diagnoses:

  • Severe and enduring Mental Health problems such as Schizophrenia & Bipolar Disorder
  • Significant / high risk of harm to self or others or severe self-neglect
  • Those requiring care co-ordination under care programme approach (CPA)
  • Psychotic symptoms
  • Personality disorders
  • Eating disorders which require specialist services
  • Drug or alcohol problems which require specialist services
  • Complex or atypical presentations

What happens if a patient worsens during treatment in Primary Care?

We will share our concerns with the person, their GP and our secondary care colleagues in the Assessment & Treatment Service &/or the Mental Health Rapid Response Service, in order to support the person's safety. We will let you know if the person is transferred to another service.
