The Care Pathways & Packages Project (CPPP) is a consortium of organisations in Yorkshire & Humber and the North East who are working together to develop national currencies and local tariffs for mental health services. The currencies, known as ‘care clusters’, cover most mental health services for working age adults and older people. The care clusters were mandated for use from April 2012.

In February 2015, the Yorkshire and Humber NHS Chief Executives Forum for mental health services requested  YH AHSN’s support for the Care Pathways and Packages Project in order to improve commissioner and service provider understanding of implementing the costing methodology and using mental health data more effectively.

This will involve the production of two ELearning modules, one on Quality and Outcomes and the second on Finance and Costings.
