Help to develop our Clinical Strategy
People interested in helping to shape the future of Norfolk and Suffolk mental health services are being invited to workshops in January and February.
The one-off group sessions will aim to develop the clinical strategy to guide Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust over the next four years, with participants being kept informed of how the strategy is progressing. More sessions will be planned if needed.
The strategy will include key priorities to improve the quality of services people receive and address the mental health needs of people living in both counties. It will also support the Trust to use resources more effectively and reduce inequalities in health.
Chief medical officer Dr Dan Dalton said: “We are currently developing our strategy and we need help from service users, their carers and staff. We already have representatives from voluntary, charitable and social enterprise organisations supporting this work but we want to spread the net wider to make sure that anyone who wants to have a say can do so. Our future clinical strategy will be a beacon for all of us who care about mental health services. We want it to give us a clear idea of the most important things to focus on.”
He added: “We provide much-needed mental health services for the population using public funds. This can be a complex and changeable environment. But, together with those with lived experience and learned experience, we will be able to shape mental health services to give clarity when things do become more complex.”
The workshops will be held on:
- Thursday, 13 January 11.30am to 1pm
- Monday, 17 January 11am to 12.30pm
- Tuesday, 25 January 9.30am to 11am, and
- Thursday, 3 February 10am to 11.30am.
