A Place for Groups in the NHS - NICE and Commissioning of Therapy Services


    Saturday 9th April 2016, 9:00 – 18:00
    Institute of Group Analysis,
    1 Daleham Gardens, London NW3 5BY


    Key Note Speaker:
    Jeremy Clark 
    The landscape of the NHS has been under considerable scrutiny in recent years.  The demand for psychological therapy to address mental health conditions has significantly increased. 
    However, whilst there are many well-established services offering individualised therapy to patients, what is the case for offering group therapies in the NHS? 
    What are the opportunities and challenges of offering group-based interventions to staff, carers or patients in the NHS and to what degree are these interventions endorsed by NICE? 
    How can we ensure group interventions not only remain on the “menu” of treatment options for patients but that there is greater recognition for how group interventions can benefit the NHS in other ways, such as through professional supervision or team-based interventions? 
    And, importantly, how can group analysts become more involved in gathering evidence for group analysis and in developing NICE guidance? 
    We are pleased to welcome a number of high profile speakers to the IGA who will be exploring with the audience how to set up, lead and demonstrate the outcomes for group-based services in the NHS and how to contribute to NICE guidance development.  
    Jeremy Clark, IAPT National Advisor and Chair of the New Savoy Partnership, will be opening this IGA workshop with an overview of NICE protocols and procedures. 
    We will also be joined by Dr Phil Moore, Chair of the Mental Health Commissioners’ Network, who will also present on the challenges faced by commissioners. 
    The workshop will also include presentations from Ann Malkin and Amra Rao, senior clinicians with expertise in developing NHS services that offer group-based interventions which aim to address the needs identified in NICE documentation. 
    Please join us for what we hope will be a lively debate on the importance of influencing the development of NICE guidance and promoting group interventions in the modern NHS.
