Future of mental health services in East Cheshire, South Cheshire and Vale Royal

CWP, together with local commissioners NHS South Cheshire and Vale Royal Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and NHS Eastern Cheshire CCG, are currently reviewing how to provide the best mental health services we can within the allocated funding.

This includes looking at the role that better community services can play in preventing people from going into crisis; and supporting people in their own homes and near their own support networks where possible. This is considered national best practice.

East and South Cheshire doesn’t currently have the wide range of community mental health services available in other parts of Cheshire.

Our aim is always to deliver the best care within allocated funding for people who access services and those who support them. We believe we are more likely to achieve this if we work with and listen to the views of local people.

Local people’s views have already been instrumental in our thinking and we will continue to work with service users, carers, key representative groups and members of the public.

    We held listening events for service users and carers in September 2017 at Crewe Alexandra FC and Macclesfield Town FC. Table-based discussions gave participants an opportunity to describe what had worked well for them, what had not worked well and how services might be improved.

    Views expressed at the events and through and an online survey will be taken into account alongside clinical evidence, national best practice and financial considerations in the development of options for a 12-week public consultation starting early in 2018. There will be a further online survey and public events to give service users, carers, the public, partners and stakeholders plenty of chance to have their say.

    No decisions will be made on the future of adult mental health services until after the consultation has ended
