With the nationwide rollout of the Right Care Right Person (RCRP) model in the UK, there has been a substantial change in the way Police respond to mental health emergencies. While the Police assert that this model will free up resources for crime prevention, concerns exist about leaving vulnerable individuals exposed following the withdrawal of the Police’s emergency response service.

How we evolve this change will affect the outcomes of patients we respond to and treat. Here we’re concerned with embracing RCRP as a Positive change, catalysing a clear transition toward straightforward and ongoing improvement in crisis response and care. NAPICU is pleased to host its Scientific Symposium for a comprehensive discussion on the development, implementation, and real-time implications of the RCRP model on mental health and emergency services. The meeting aims to gain current insights into the evolving landscape of mental health crisis response and address challenges arising from this new emergency response model.
