A high percentage of non-NHS beds are currently being used by trusts to support mental health needs where the NHS does not have bed capacity; or in some cases, the services to support specific mental health needs. A national ambition was set to eliminate inappropriate out-of-area placements in mental health services for adults in acute inpatient care by March 2021.

NOE CPC's multi-lot framework agreement offers contracting authorities access to both intensive care beds as well as stepped-down rehabilitation and community beds for both male and female patients.
