Compliment, comment or complaint
Our Patient Relations Team are a confidential advice, support and information service and welcome feedback about our services as we recognise the value that comments, complaints, concerns and compliments can provide.
Your opinions make a difference.
Join the conversation about reducing waiting times for children and young people’s mental health services.
For the first time, the NHS is launching a month-long online conversation on children and young people’s mental health, with a focus on gathering learning and ideas on how we can improve waiting times and make services more accessible.
Using the Solving Together platform we will be inviting partners involved in the children and young peoples mental health pathway, professionals, children and young people and their families to have a say about this critical issue – with a focus on collecting ideas and best practice for ways to make our NHS services better in the future.
The work will then continue with teams across the country to prototype and test the most promising ideas.
The conversations will be live from the 9th October. We want to hear from you, so come and have your say via https://solvingtogether.crowdicity.com/

Community Engagement Panel
Are you a parent or carer of a child or young person accessing CAMHS?
The Community Engagement Panel is a group of service users, carers and interested members of the public who give views and feedback on a range of topics from complete service redesigns, to language used in patient documents. Members meet virtually once a month, and take part in surveys, focus groups and events and have the oppourtunity to shape the Trust’s services by becoming the public voice at the heart of our organisation.
