You will remember that we wrote to you in February to advise of changes to the way we deliver Approved Mental Health Professional Services for Lincolnshire. To summarise:
From 1st April 2022, Lincolnshire County Council Adult Care will directly provide a single 24/7 AMHP service to undertake all Approved Mental Health Professional duties for Lincolnshire. This will help reduce duplication of support and hand over of cases.
The new service will provide a single point of contact for those seeking Approved Mental Health Professional support, providing a consistent response across the 24-hour period. The service will work closely with partners to continue to improve support to the most vulnerable people in Lincolnshire at the most challenging times, ensuring an appropriate response in a timely way.
From 1st April 2022 the contact details for the new service are as follows:
AMHP Service Hub
Lincolnshire County Council
8am to 8pm 01522 550411
8pm -8am (out of hours) 01522 782333
For general enquiries please email AMHPservice@lincolnshire.gov.uk
Please note: this is not continually monitored so please do not use for referrals or urgent matters.
If you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to contact Linda Mac Donnell, Head of Safeguarding, firstname.lastname@example.org
