Have your say: Recommissioning of talking therapies in Bristol

December 9, 2015 at 3:32 pm

BIMHN is urging past, current or future service users, providers, and health and social care professionals to have their say over the Bristol Clinical Commissionning Group’s (CCG) recommissioning of IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) services.

IAPT is a national NHS programme designed to make it easier for people suffering from anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) to access talking therapy treatments.

According to the CCG, the new service will offer greater flexibility around the duration of treatment and the number of sessions available for people who need them.

There will also be an improved early assessment process which means that the waiting time will be less from assessment to therapy.

For more information and to share your views visit: www.bristolccg.nhs.uk. The deadline is 8th Jan 2015.

Did you know BIMHN runs regular focus groups to help gather feedback on how IAPT services are run?

Our next focus groups are being held on 17th December (10am-12pm) and 7th January (5.45-7.15pm). If this is something you’d be interested in joining, please contact: bimhn.engagement@gmail.com
