Save Redbridge Art Psychotherapy Services for people with Mental Health Challenges
- Residents or Political representatives involved with Redbridge
- United Kingdom
THE North East London NHS Foundation Trust (NELFT) have chosen to cut the 'Redbridge Art Psychotherapy Services' with no consultation from Service Users, Foundation Trust Members, or wider stakeholders. This runs contrary to their promises to involve service users in the commissioning and organisation of services.
The Outer North East London PCT (ONEL) commissions the North East London NHS Foundation Trust to provide mental health services for the LB of Redbridge populus.
In order that ONEL can apparently balance their finances they requested NELFT to submit to submit "efficiences" of 1.5% on top of pre-exisiting committments in service reductions / savings.
Without ANY consultation with Service Users, Foundation Trust members, Staff or Elected Representatives - NELFT submitted Art Psychotherapy Services for decommissioning. The lack of consultation runs contrary to NELFTs own trust policies and the coalition governments of "no health without mental health".
To: Outer North East London PCT and North East London NHS Foundation Trust.
- TO STOP the decommissioning of Art Psychotherapy Services within Redbridge. To begin a consultation of all Redbridge Service Users on the mertis of Art therapy, and to produce an independent evalutation of the results.
- For ONEL and NELFT to be fully transparent and hold a public meeting, inviting all NELFT service users, elected representatives and other stakeholders to explain why services are being decommissioned and how they selected each service.
