Mental health trusts in the North West and South West of England are invited to put forward expressions of interest for four new CLEAR mental health transformation and workforce redesign projects.

Sponsored by Health Education England, the projects are part of the national Clinically-Led Workforce and Activity Redesign (CLEAR) programme.

This latest wave of projects focusses on enhancing community mental health teams (CHMTs) care of adults with severe mental illnesses and developing the workforce in line with the aims of the NHS Long Term Plan.

The shortlisted projects will launch in March 2022, with a six-month preparation period for recruitment and data extraction before the full on-the-ground 26-week delivery commences in August for completion in 2023.

The deadline for expressions of interest is Monday 31 January 2022.

Further information is available in a series of webinars: Monday 13 January 2022, 11am – 12pm (South West) and Thursday 20 January 2022, 1pm – 2pm (North West), each will include a presentation and Q&A session. To join or for more information, please contact the CLEAR team at:

The CLEAR programme is hosted by East Lancashire NHS Trust and delivered by 33n, a team of NHS clinicians, data engineers and scientists who are united in their passion to improve services, address workforce challenges and enhance patient care.

More information and application details are available on the CLEAR Mental Health 2022/23 page of the CLEAR website.
