Give us your views and help improve mental health services
People living in Great Yarmouth and Waveney are being invited to give their views on proposals to improve adult mental health and dementia services for patients, their families and carers.
HealthEast will ask for feedback on three proposals developed by the Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust, which provides mental health services for local people, during a 12 week public consultation which began on 30 January.
The proposed changes have been designed by NSFT to make services better for patients and be able to treat people as well as possible within the money available. NSFT’s emphasis will be on directing people quickly to the most appropriate service to meet their needs, so that the care that they need is delivered in the best way possible.
The consultation builds on the philosophy that care should be delivered in patients’ own homes wherever possible, by an integrated team of health and social care professionals working together to reduce duplication and prevent unnecessary hospital admissions.
Four public meetings have been organised to give people in Great Yarmouth and Waveney the chance to have their say on proposals to improve adult mental health and dementia services for patients, their families and carers.
• Thursday, 13 February, 6pm until 8pm at North Lowestoft United Reformed Church, London Road North, Lowestoft, NR32 1HB.
• Tuesday, 25 February, 10am until 12noon at the Comfort Hotel, 14 Albert Square, Great Yarmouth, NR30 3JH
• Wednesday, 19 March, 6pm until 8pm at The Kings Centre, Queen Anne’s Road, Southtown, Great Yarmouth, NR31 OLE.
