Rehabilitation and Recovery Services for Mental Health in Kirklees – have your say

NHS Greater Huddersfield and North Kirklees Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), who buy (commission) health care for local people, want to improve local mental health services. The CCGs will work with Kirklees Local Authority to gather views on;

  • The type of Rehabilitation and Recovery services, including supported accommodation people would like to see (this would include looking at the current service based at Enfield Down)
  • What good community services for mental health could look like, including help to keep people well and the type of support that needs to be in place

The CCGs, Local Authority and current providers will work together to develop future services using the views of local people.

What type of Rehabilitation services do we have now?
Enfield Down based in Honley, provides a service for people who have long term complex mental health needs. In addition there are 43 people who are receiving services in accommodation outside the Kirklees area.

What happens in the community now?
People in the community who require rehabilitation services are supported by ‘Community Mental Health teams’. Many of the people supported this way will also have used specialist hospital inpatient facilities.
We want local people to tell us what else we need to do to ensure that we can support people in the local community with complex mental health needs.

We also want local people to help make sure that the services we buy (commission) are right for all our population, not just those who use services now.

We need your help to make sure we have the right services in our local area. Please help by either completing the survey online at: http://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/RehabandRecovery/
