Engagement starts on services formerly at the George Bryan Centre

Mon 9 Sep 2019

On 12th February 2019, a fire destroyed the west wing of the George Bryan Centre. It provided an assessment, care and treatment service for working age adults who are in an acute state of mental illness and a mental health assessment service for people aged over 65.

Temporary arrangements have been in place since the fire and MPFT would like to design permanent solutions. An engagement exercise is underway for people living in Tamworth, Lichfield and Burton to discuss how best to create outstanding services. 

Four engagement events have been organised for people living in Tamworth, Lichfield and Burton to discuss how best to create outstanding: 

assessment, care and treatment service for working age adults who are in an acute state of mental illness

mental health assessment service for people aged over 65.  

Anyone can attend the events, but we would particularly like to involve people who have used the George Bryan Centre and their family or carers. We would also like to hear from people who live in Burton, Lichfield and Tamworth who have experience of being admitted to St George’s Hospital, Stafford.
