The Lambeth Early Onset service is part of South London and Maudsley (SLaM) NHS Foundation Trust and provides support to people aged 18–35 years who are living in the London borough of Lambeth and are experiencing first episode psychosis.

The Lambeth EIP service comprises: the community team; a dedicated EIP inpatient unit; and the Outreach and Support in South London Service (OASIS), a specialist service for people at high risk of psychosis singulair for asthma. The community team includes: care coordinators (registered nurses, occupational therapists and social workers), a vocational worker, psychologists and psychiatrists.

The OASIS service and the EIP inpatient unit have now expanded to cover the additional boroughs of Southwark, Lewisham and Croydon and work closely with the community teams there.

In line with quality statement 1, SLaM places
a strong emphasis on the ethos of rapid access. The SLaM EIP pathway works across boroughs, helping teams to share good practice through regular training and development events, and benefits from close ties with King’s College London as part of the King’s Health Partnership Academic Health Science Centre. Through the provision of GP training and direct access to community teams, these services reduce the delays in accessing specialist assessment and treatment.
