About: Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust

(as a staff member posting for a carer/relative),

The group are concerned that commisioning groups are making decisions about cutting services without consulting service users and carers who are the experts by their experience.

Response from Jo Horsley, Adult Mental Health Service Manager - Acute services, Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust

Hello, As a manager and provider of services I am keen to support you with the concerns you have raised and wondered if you would like to contact me on 01159691300 ext 14112 to discuss in more detail.

I am an operational manager in adult mental health and work closely with different commissioning groups to ensure services they commission best meet the needs of service users and their carers. Many of the commissioners I work with are keen to increase the membership of their groups to ensure they include and consult with service users and carers in service redesign.

I’d be keen to share you views with commissions so that they can respond to your concerns directly.
