One of BIMHN’s main roles is to represent the voice of those with lived experience of mental health within Bristol.
How Do We Do This?
BIMHN supports both its members and a number of lived experience representatives, who sit on a variety of meetings within the local civic and healthcare authorities, and associated agencies.
An example of such sessions are mental health service monitoring meetings that are run by Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group (BNSSG CCG). BNSSG CCG hold these meetings as they are the body ultimately responsible for introducing and designing local healthcare services, overseeing the implementation of the service providers, and reviewing such services during their operations. These monitoring meetings scrutinise the service on an ongoing basis.
Such meetings also provide an opportunity for feedback to be raised. Often other agencies, authorities and stakeholders are present at the meetings we sit on, like Bristol City Council, Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust (AWP), Public Health England, and more. This gives us an opportunity to raise concerns and comments at a high level.
So, if you have feedback or comments on anything to do with your experience of mental health treatment or care within Bristol, please get in touch with us. We will arrange for it to be raised, and do our best to update you along the way.
Other Ways of Giving Feedback
BNSSG CCG’s Customer Services Team welcome feedback from service users on every aspect of care on an ongoing basis. For more information, including advocacy services available, take a look at their flyer.
