Description

A Forensic Mental Health Care Cluster  is a type of CARE CLUSTER  for PATIENTS accessing Forensic Mental Health Services.

A Forensic Mental Health Care Cluster  is part of a currency developed to support the National Tariff Payment System for Forensic Mental Health Services.

Forensic Mental Health Care Clusters are 22 groupings of Forensic Mental Health Patients based on their characteristics.

A Forensic Mental Health Care Cluster  is assigned using a decision tree or algorithm based on the PERSON SCORE from the Forensic Mental Health Clustering Tool undertaken by a CARE PROFESSIONAL for the PATIENT.

This is done by first assigning the PATIENT to one of three Mental Health Care Cluster Super Classes, to narrow down the number of possible Forensic Mental Health Care Clusters which are applicable to the PATIENT's condition. The PATIENT is then assigned to the most appropriate of this sub-set of Forensic Mental Health Care Clusters.

Further information relating to the Forensic Mental Health Clustering Tool  and  Forensic Mental Health Care Cluster  is available from the gov.uk website at: The NHS payment system: documents and guidance.
