Norfolk and Suffolk mental health trust asking for public’s views

Have your say

Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust will be holding two events this month inviting service users, carers, staff and those interested in mental health to discuss and develop its strategic objectives for the next two years.

Feedback from the meetings will be used by the trust to help it work towards the removal of special measures, which it hopes to achieve by March 2016.

Michael Scott, the trust’s chief executive, said: “Developing clear and comprehensive strategic objectives of where our trust is going, and how we achieve that, are a core part of our trust’s road to improvement.”

The two open events will take place at Ipswich County Library on Tuesday, March 10 at 1.30pm, and at the King’s Centre in Norwich on Wednesday, March 11 at 9.30am.

Visitors will be asked about the trust’s strategic priorities and how they would like to see them achieved.

The trust will use this feedback to create a ‘robust’ strategy to help deliver services safely and improve its financial situation.

Mr Scott added: “By involving everyone working at our trust or using our services, we can listen and act on their views and suggestions.”
