Mental Health Services Review


Summary

We are working with Bath and North East Somerset Council to review how we can improve community mental health services.

We asked people: what is working well? What could be improved? What are the gaps in current services? A huge thank you to everyone who filled in our survey or met with us. 

We are now exploring different options for how services could be delivered and will be asking for people’s feedback in November 2017.

We are working with Bath and North East Somerset Council to carry out a review of community mental health services between May – November 2017.

Our review will look at the way community mental health services are provided, so we can decide what improvements need to be made in the future. This will build on the priorities that were identified in the your care, your way review of community health and care services earlier this year, and help us to achieve positive changes in mental health and wellbeing provision for people living in B&NES.

As part of our review, we are engaging with a wide range of people – from those who provide services, to those who use services and the people who care for them.

A huge thank you to everyone who filled in our recent survey or met with us to share your experiences of community mental health services. We will share a summary of what everyone told us, in late October.

We are now exploring different options for how community mental health services can be provided, and we will be asking the public for feedback on these in November.

If you have any questions about the Review, please email mhreview@bathnes.gov.uk.

What happens next?

1. We will use all of the information people have shared with us, along with other research, to develop a set of options for how community mental health services in B&NES could be delivered in the future.

2. We will share these different options and ask for your feedback in November 2017.

3. We will choose an option, based on public feedback, ready for delivery in April 2018.
