Dr Mike Hunter is our Joint Lead for Rehab and Recovery.
Mike Hunter is a Consultant Psychiatrist with a background in Rehabilitation & Recovery. He is Clinical Director for Inpatient and Community Mental Health Services at Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust. Mike is interested in community alternatives to hospital and led the development of Sheffield’s Community Enhanced Recovery Team (CERT). The CERT team has brought back to Sheffield, and into their own independent tenancies, services users who had previously been within the out-of-area ‘locked rehab’ system. The success of the team has led to a 99% reduction in hospital bed nights needed by these service users. Mike has also led on the abolition of acute out-of-area bed use in Sheffield by developing an integrated community and inpatient acute care pathway.
