In this section, you can find out how you can get involved in helping to shape the services we provide and read about some of our co-produced work.

Come and join our mental health forum for an honest discussion about local mental health services. The Trust wide forum is open to all service users, patients, staff, carers, friends and families of those who use Trust services.

The carers’ council exists to strengthen the collective voice of carers and ensure it's heard across the organisation, as we work together to ensure people receive the highest quality of care and experience at the Trust. 

As a member of the carers' council you can be an active voice and represent the people that use our services and their experiences. Find out more about the carers' council and how to become a member. 

The work of the service user and carer experience sub committee (SUCE) is central to ensuring Trust services meet the needs of those who use them.

Our research service is led by Dr Samantha Scholtz, who’s also a consultant psychiatrist specialising in the management of obesity and related disorders.  We conduct research into a wide range of areas to help improve patients’ experience and outcomes.

There are lots of ways you can get involved in research, from helping to shape the way we deliver services to clinical trials for new treatments. Taking part in research ultimately helps to save lives and improve patients’ experiences.
