S12 Solutions is honoured to be sponsoring the Thank You Social Workers event and we want to share our support and thanks for all they do.
S12 Solutions was created by Amy Manning, a practising Approved Mental Health Professional (AMHP) and Social Worker. Amy was frustrated by the inefficient paper-based process used to arrange Mental Health Act (MHA) Assessments, a process identified as a leading cause of delay to assessment by the Association of Directors of Social Services (ADASS) in 2018. After researching the problem in other parts of the country, Amy set about finding a digital solution, and in 2017 S12 Solutions was created.
S12 Solutions is an app and website, which supports AMHPs and section 12 (s.12) doctors to efficiently complete MHA assessment processes by organising MHA assessing teams, accessing video calling and allowing you to create, sign and share electronic Statutory Mental Health Act Forms.
The S12 Solutions platform is being implemented across over 60% of England and is on two of NHSE/I’s National Innovation Programs.
S12 Solutions is passionate about the service and digital tools we provide to AMHPs, and work from a shared ethos of keeping the person being assessed at the centre of everything we do. S12 Solutions culture is to develop digital tools in collaboration with the users, primarily AMHP and doctors.
S12 Solutions is in a unique position of working with AMHPs across nearly 100 local authorities and across geographical and organizational boundaries.
Amy is very proud to be an AMHP and uses her voice to educate others about the essential role AMHPs play in upholding Human Rights. We wanted to sponsor this event, and to be part of recognising the incredible, demanding and challenging work undertaken by the AMHPs 365 days a year, 24 hours a day which is often not celebrated enough due to the nature of the work.
