New service for self-harmers

31st August 2006

A new team set up to pioneer 24-hour self care in the community for people who self-harm has been set up in Bradford with a team including distirct nurses, nurse practitioners and practice nurses. 

The six-month pilot, being funded by North Bradford PCT, has been established to improve care for people who self-hram, who often have to wait in A&E.  The team of 26 will be trained to understand why people self-harm.  Due to start in October it will provide 24-hour care seven days a week for those over 16 attending local surgeries and health centres.
