People participation is about working together with service
users, their carers and families and staff, giving them the chance to have
input into how the Trust is run and how it affects them. It is about further improving the
service for everyone.
Each geographical area is now served by a Care Group led by a Service Director,
a Clinical Director, a Lead Nurse and a People Participation Lead.
People Participation Leads have extensive professional
experience in the mental health service and personal experience of mental health issues.
The aim is for service users and carers to get the very best services and that means listening
and working hard to deliver what is needed.
