Review of Transport for Community Healthcare provision in Kent
This project examines the current provision of appropriate transport for people suffering from mental illness in rural Kent. Of particular interest is the way in which poor availability of transport could be affecting the delivery of care to service users. Included in this project is a study of the transport assessments made as part of Discharge Planning and Community Care Assessments, and the way in which they could play a more important role within the design of care plans. A small number of mentally ill people was interviewed in depth about their transport needs. Analysis of the interview data shows that mentally ill people clearly have several problems with transport and that some of these have effects on their treatment. Some of these problems relate to the way in which public and special needs transport is organised and operated and others relate to the way in which people deal with transport when feeling unwell. A number of exciting options for resolving this are being proposed which could help to relieve some of the problems. In particular, we are looking at the possibility of introducing "travel mentors" to help people use the transport system.
