The Mental Health (Regional Provision) (Wales) Regulations 2012

This consultation seeks your views on regulations which would enable Local Health Boards (LHBs) and local authorities in Wales to enter into regional working arrangements.
Start of consultation: 26/09/2011
End of consultation: 16/12/2011

These bodies (the ‘local mental health partners’) would be required to:

  • deliver local primary mental health support services under Part 1 of the Mental Health (Wales) Measure 2010, and
  • make arrangements for provision of assessments for former users of secondary mental health services under Part 3 of the Measure.

The Regulations have been drafted in a way which recognises and facilitates these regional arrangements.

LHBs and local authorities would not then be able to make Part 1 schemes or Part 3 arrangements on a local authority-wide basis as the Measure currently allows. They would be obliged to enter into region-wide schemes and arrangements.
