This service is the access point to non-urgent mental healthcare. Community Integrated Mental Health Service (CIMHS) North and South comprise 5 teams linked to Newham’s Primary Care Networks; bringing together primary and secondary care, local authority services and our third sector and local communities to support people with severe mental health problems, including complex emotional needs associated with a diagnosis of ‘personality disorder’ and disordered eating.

These teams have taken over the functions of the former Assessment and Brief Treatment (ABT) Team and Enhanced Primary Care Liaison Service (EPCL), but this is a developing programme of Community Mental Health Transformation with further services to be added. Teams are grouped as CIMHS North and South, corresponding to office base and linked to PCNs as follows:

    • Stratford PCN
