Step-up to Great Mental Health Report of Findings
Between Monday 24 May and Sunday 15 August, the Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, in partnership with Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust ran the Step-up to Great Mental Health public consultation.
The public consultation asked people their views on proposals to invest in and improve adult mental health services for people living in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, when their need is urgent, or they need planned care and treatment.
A total of 6,650 people participated in the public consultation using a variety of digital and non-digital ways to tell us what matters most to them.
People told us so much about their experiences and those of their family and friends. Everything that people told us has been independently analysed, by Midlands and Lancashire Commissioning Support Unit and today (Tuesday 23 November 2021) we have published a detailed Report of Findings and a Summary Report of Findings.
All of the experiences and real insights that we captured have been used to develop a document called a Decision-Making Business Case. This document outlines how we have considered the public feedback and used it to shape how we propose to implement the improvements.
The Report of Findings will now be discussed by the Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) in a Governing Body meeting along with the Decision-Making Business Case and a final decision made about implementing the proposals.
Although the Governing Body meeting is not a public meeting, it will be held in public session. Depending on any Covid-19 restrictions applicable at the time of the meeting, it may be held virtually or face-to-face. We will ensure that this meeting, which will be in December, is promoted widely across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.
When the CCGs Governing Body make a decision, we will make this public. Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust would then undertake further work with service users, their families and carers, and staff to co-produce the improvements.
We would like to thank everyone who contributed the public consultation, as well as everyone who helped promote it.
