IMPACT is the NHS-led Provider Collaborative in the East Midlands for low and medium adult secure mental health services.


What does this provider do? 

IMPACT is the name used by the East Midlands Provider Collaborative and is led by Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust. It stands for IMproved Pathways  And Community Teams.

Their clinical model seeks to transform adult secure care services across the region through improving patient pathways, the interfaces between the health, social care and criminal justice system, and on-going service development.

This includes low and medium secure care for adult patients with a forensic mental health or dual diagnosis, and secure care for people with a challenging Learning Disability and/or Autistic Spectrum Disorder.
