Your views needed on proposals for improvements in mental health day services
The NHS clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) in Birmingham, led by Birmingham CrossCity CCG, are consulting on proposed changes to some of the mental health services that they buy from third sector organisations.
The consultation will be gathering views from local people, past and current service users, carers and organisations, on a number of proposals. These include creating ‘recovery centres’ for people with serious mental illnesses; offering individuals support with their employment, education and training options; and accessing personal health budgets.
A single provider of services is also being proposed, which could be one organisation or a number of organisations working as a partnership. The aim of which is to ensure that individuals from across Birmingham, receive the same high-quality mental health day services, regardless of where they live in the city.
There are meetings planned throughout the consultation, which local people and organisations are encouraged to attend.
- The twelve week consultation runs from Wednesday 01 March to Friday 26 May 2017.
