To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what the average waiting time was for an assessment conducted by the (a) Transition, Intervention and Liaison veterans' mental health service, (b) Community Therapeutic Services and (c) High Intensity Services following a person's first contact with Op COURAGE in each month from January 2022 to May 2022 inclusive.
There are no plans to set a target waiting time for referrals to the Op COURAGE High Intensity Service. This service augments existing provisions and veterans will receive support within Op COURAGE or mainstream mental health services such as the Crisis Team. The following table below shows the average waiting time for an assessment in the Transition, Intervention and Liaison Service, the Complex Treatment Service and the High Intensity Service within Op COURAGE from January to April 2022. Data for May is not yet available.
