Community Sector views are being sought on improving wellbeing and mental health and supporting people with a mental health condition.
We are looking to understand the continuum of service in Herefordshire and consider how we can ensure what we offer makes sense for people who might use them and identify any possible gaps.
SENT ON BEHALF OF LES TREWIN, OPERATIONAL SERVICE DIRECTOR
You may be aware that Herefordshire and Worcestershire STP have been successful in a bid to secure additional funding to improve patient Mental Health care across both counties. The bid focussed on closing the gap between primary and secondary mental health provision with the aim of providing fully integrated services that protects patients from falling between services. The aim will be to introduce a model that provides integrated services, working with partners to address the physical and mental health needs of the community primary care network populations. By transforming community mental health services into a primary care facing neighbourhood-level service, bridging the current gaps in provision and ensuring a consistent presence in practices and PCN’s, services could switch to a population health approach.
We would like to invite you to a co-facilitated workshop (Healthwatch and Herefordshire Health and Care) to consider what the voluntary sector provides to support people with their wellbeing and improving their mental health and supporting people with a mental health condition. We are looking to understand the continuum of service in Herefordshire and consider how we can ensure what we offer makes sense for people who might use them and identify any possible gaps.
