Consultation

Mental Health Survey Launched

Residents in Staffordshire are being asked to share how their mental health is, in a survey that will influence how organisations approach the issue.

The survey, which has been launched by Staffordshire County Council and local Clinical Commissioning Groups, aims to understand how people are feeling, what has affected their mental wellbeing both negatively and positively, and what can be learnt from how people have been helping themselves and supporting others.

George Bryan Centre Consultation

The COVID-19 pandemic delayed the conclusion of the exercise to determine the long-term solution for the services previously provided by the George Bryan Centre.

We are now re-starting the process and are holding two engagement events for stakeholders, staff, patients, and members of the public to tell us their views about mental health services and help us to understand what is important to them and what could be improved.

Health and Care Consultation – Your Local Healthwatch in Staffordshire

Why are we consulting with you?

Staffordshire County Council is recommissioning their Healthwatch services from 1 April 2022. The County Council are legally required to provide these services but have a choice as to how they are best delivered. To do this we are exploring views around the current and future Healthwatch approach, including how this could be further strengthened and focused to ensure it meets the needs of local people and influences the future of health and social care services.
