Proposed changes to mental health services. Public engagement meetings - have your say

One of the organisations commissioned by Nottingham City CCG to provide mental health services for people in the City - Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust - is seeking people’s views about proposed changes to some of its mental health services for adults across the City and County.

The Trust is proposing the creation of a further Community Rehabilitation Team serving the Mansfield and Ashfield area and the expansion of the successfully developed Community Rehabilitation Team serving residents of the City and South County of Nottinghamshire. These developments will allow more people to be supported to meet their rehabilitation need in their own homes, optimising recovery in the home environment.

As part of this review, the Trust is proposing a move away from delivering care in an inpatient setting by closing Heather Close in Mansfield and Broomhill House in Gedling.

Health professionals, members of the public, patients and carers are invited to feed back on these proposals as part of a six week engagement period which closes on 29 July.

Details of two public meetings are below or people can submit a written response to the Trust’s proposals by 29 July 2015 via their website.

Public meetings

  • Thursday 16 July from 10am to 12pm at The Towers, Botany Avenue, Mansfield, Nottingham NG18 5NG
  • Friday 17 July from 10am to 12pm at St George's Centre, 91 Victoria Road, Netherfield, Nottingham NG4 2NN
