The next Mental Health Conversations event will focus on developing a mental health strategy for Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire.
Community health services across Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire (BNSSG) are currently being reviewed, before they are put out to tender next year.
Community health services provide care in or close to people’s homes to help them feel supported, avoid having to go to hospital or help them when they come out of hospital.
Earlier in the year, we were contacted by Bristol North Somerset and South Gloucestershire (BNSSG) Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) about their consultation on Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT).
Do you have an interest in the quality of healthcare services in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire (BNSSG)? If so, BNSSG Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) would like to hear from you.
Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group (BNSSG CCG) will be producing an urgent care strategy which will set out their future plans for commissioning urgent and emergency care across the whole area. The CCGs’ aim is to ensure that their population has access to the best care from the right person in the best place and at the right time.
There will be a workshop to capture local people’s thoughts and the reasons for choosing a particular urgent and / or emergency care service. The aim is to highlight areas where the system is not working and where the patient and carer experience is poor, as well as identifying the areas where urgent and emergency care services are working well.
Update: If you can’t attend the meeting on 21st March, but would like to feed into this important strategy, please fill out the following short survey: BNSSG Urgent Care Strategy Survey

As some of you will be aware, BNSSG (Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire) Clinical Commissioning Groups are re-designing and re-commissioning talking therapies services. This includes counselling, CBT and group therapy.
Have you accessed talking therapies? Has the person that you care for accessed them? Do you have any views that you would like to feed in?
