This means the HIT is no longer active

ITHAcA was a partnership between the acute NHS trusts, two universities, clinical commissioning groups  and the Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership. Collaboration across these organisations is vital if a successful reduction of avoidable admissions is to be achieved, and ITHAcA provided a vehicle through which such discussions and partnerships could occur.

The HIT was set up in 2012 and closed in 2020.
