Bedfordshire and Luton Complex Needs Service

The Complex Needs Service is a multi-disciplinary specialist team that works across Bedfordshire and Luton, incorporating Bedford Borough Council, Central Bedfordshire Council, and Luton Borough Council, to improve community-based care for people with complex emotional needs associated with a diagnosis of ‘personality disorder.’

The service aims to reduce stigma and promote equality of service provision, inclusion, therapeutic optimism and empowerment.
The team operates as a hub, in-reaching to the community mental health services to offer specialist advice, training, consultation and supervision to other professionals and colleagues.  

Community mental health services are able to refer people with particularly complex needs and high levels of risk for assessment and evidence-based interventions, and local acute psychiatric inpatient units can request time limited additional support from the Complex Needs Service for people who have had repeated difficulty coping with the transition back to a community setting.
