Your views needed on proposals for improvements in mental health day services

Published: 01/03/2017

 From 1 March 2017 until 26 May 2017, the NHS clinical commissioning groups in Birmingham would like your views on a number of proposed changes to some of the mental health services we buy from third sector organisations.

NHS clinical commissioning groups, or CCGs, are responsible for planning and buying health services for patients in Birmingham.

Third sector organisations are ‘not for profit’ and/or non-governmental. Sometimes these are charities or private organisations.

The proposals 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.

The full background information and the consultation documentation can be found at: http://bhamcrosscityccg.nhs.uk/get-involved/consultations-and-surveys, where you will also find details of public meetings.

The consultation questionnaire can be completed online here: www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/BirminghamMHConsultation
