National Clinical Audit of Psychosis: Early Intervention in Psychosis Audit Report (Wales)
Published: 14 Jul 2022
The National Clinical Audit of Psychosis (NCAP) has published its Early Intervention in Psychosis (EIP) audit 2021/22 report for Wales. Based on 239 casenotes submitted by six Health Boards, it presents national and Health Board-level findings on services provided to people with first-episode psychosis (FEP).
The report found that 85% of people with first episode psychosis (FEP) who had not responded adequately to treatment with at least two antipsychotic drugs were offered clozapine. Other key findings include:
36% of people with FEP who were not in work/education took up a supported employment and education programme
51% of people with FEP received all seven physical health screenings (27% increase from previous audit)
All teams have a Children and Young People (CYP) EIP provision (44% increase from previous audit).
The report also looked at the disparities in EIP care between different groups of people with FEP to highlight inequalities. As such it recommends that Health Boards should review local and national data to develop a strategy to identify and address mental health inequalities in access to or uptake of interventions for people with FEP, and to ensure equitable access to EIP care
