This practical toolkit sets standards for mental health professionals working with young people placed on adult mental health wards.

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.
Service users will need to be assessed and 'assigned' to the relevant cluster. As peoples needs change overtime they will need to be re-assessed and re-clustered periodically. The clustering booklet is time-limited as work continues across the NHS to refine and validate both the assessment and the clusters.
