Transforming community services

 Transformation Programme logo

Our plan to transform our community mental health services in Leeds has been discussed thoroughly with staff, service users and partner organisations, as well as commissioners and the health scrutiny committee and changes have now been made. 

Here are the key elements, which will enable us to work in this new way;

Single Point of Access

Our single point of access to all our services was launched on 25 June 2012, with one new phone number for all referrals to mainstream mental health services, making access to services simpler. Referrals can be made by: 

Phone: 0300 300 1485

Post:    Referral Administration Office

Leeds and York PFT

The Becklin Centre

Alma Street

Leeds, LS9 7BE


Community Mental Health Teams

We now have three Community Mental Health Teams covering the city and aligned with Intensive Community Services. They will be based in three localities which are aligned to local authority and District Nursing Team boundaries. These are:

Leeds East North East

Community Mental Health Team are based at Asket Croft (Seacroft).

Leeds West North West 

Community Mental Health Team are based at St Mary’s Hospital (Armley).

Leeds South 

Community Mental Health Team is based at Aire Court (Middleton).

Intensive Community Services

The Intensive Community Service is now an ageless service providing a mix of home visiting and acute day-treatment. This service will bring together the functions which were provided by Acute Community Services (adults), Mental Health Intermediate Care Team (Older People) and the Home Based Treatment Team (adult).

The new Intensive Community Services will be closely integrated with the three community teams outlined above, based at the same locations. 

Leeds East North East

Intensive Community Service is based at St.Mary’s House, Chapeltown. 

Leeds West North West 

Intensive Community Service is based at St Mary’s Hospital, Armley.

Leeds South 

Intensive Community Service is based at Aire Court, Middleton.

Memory Services

The Memory service will operate as a city wide service, based at St Mary’s Hospital, Armley, but with a presence in the locality team hubs at St Mary’s House, Chapeltown and Aire Court, Middleton.

Young People with Dementia Team and Care Homes Team

Young People with Dementia Team and the Care Homes Team will be based at St Mary’s Hospital, Armley. We do not have a definite date for this move as yet, but you will still be able to contact the teams via the Single Point of Access.

Community Learning Disability Teams

There will be three teams which will operate the same boundaries as the three locality teams.

As of Monday 3 September, the CLDT joined SPA, using the same process of making a referral.
