Do you use any of the Trust’s services?

Do you care for someone who uses Trust’s services?

Join our Forum of Carers and people who Use our Services as one way of having your say about the way we do things and helping us improve services.

    Some of the things FoCUS has achieved are:

      • Production and implementation of new standards for involving people
        • Soundproofing of consultation rooms to ensure confidentiality
          • Carers Charter
            • New voice mail protocol
              • Obtaining the right for people to request a change of psychiatrist.

                Join Your Local Area Group

                The area groups meet on a regular basis to provide people who use services and carers with the opportunity to hear about what is happening in the Trust and feedback their comments or any concerns about the health and social care of people with mental ill-health or learning disabilities.

                Please get involved and join one of our area groups - you are welcome to join any group that is convenient for you. We are able to pay your travel expenses at each meeting and can arrange transport for you if required.
