3. Scope of the Quality Indicator profile
Mental health service provision, for all ages, is delivered on a tiered model. Generally, Health Boards are responsible for Tier 1, with integration authorities delivering Tiers 2, 3, and 4.
Tier 4 = highly specialist mental health services
e.g. psychiatric inpatients
Tier 3 = specialist community mental health services
Tier 2 = community mental health at a primary care level
Tier 1 = population level mental health including third sector and eHealth
Initially the QIs will only apply to secondary services at Tiers 3 and 4. It will be up to primary and third sector organisations to decide if and how they use these indicators to evidence the quality of their work in relation to mental health.
