How you can get involved

We have brought together a mental health transformation co-production and redesign group consisting of:

  • People who use services
  • Their family carers
  • Officers from Norfolk and Suffolk Foundation Trust Recovery College
  • Housing providers
  • NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs)
  • Adult social services commissioners
  • Public health

The group's terms of reference:

The group is a fundamental part of service change.

Its role is to contribute to the development of the services on an ongoing basis. This includes:

  • Shaping of service specifications
  • Shaping standards for services
  • Shaping outcomes
  • Shaping performance indicators
  • Informing communications
  • Being part of ongoing service development, once new services are established

Read the formal outcomes from this group:

Service users also fed back their views on the service models presented by providers during the tender process, including women-only services. This feedback informed the specification and the ring-fencing of funding for women-only services in supported housing and community enablement.

How you can get involved

Our group of service users and carers meet every month in Norwich. The new service also has local groups involved in shaping services.

We are looking at other ways of involving people such as online groups. 

If you are interested in getting involved email mhnorfolk@norfolk.gov.uk. You can also find out more by reading new mental health services in Norfolk frequently asked questions - question 12.

People can continue to have a say about the service they get through discussions with support staff in the new service and their social worker.
