Clustering booklet: for use in mental health payment by results evaluation work (July-Dec 2009)

Booklet designed to help in the preparation for mental health Payment by Results. This clustering booklet contains the assessment tool (HoNOS PbR) and the 21 clusters developed by the Care Pathways and Packages Project.

The clustering booklet is time-limited as work continues across the NHS to refine and validate both the assessment and the clusters.
