Following the conclusion of our public consultation on the proposed relocation of adult in-patient mental health beds from Wells to Yeovil on 12 April 2020, Participate Ltd undertook an independent analysis of all the feedback received.
The report can be downloaded here: Mental Health Consultation Report.
Our original intention was to share the independent analysis of all the feedback received during the consultation at a public event in Wells. Given the current Government guidelines on face to face gatherings, we are unable to do this face to face.
We arranged a virtual feedback sharing event for 7pm on Wednesday 02 September via MS Teams Live Events.
The event was hosted by David Heath, Non-Executive Director, and Dr Peter Bagshaw (GP and clinical lead for mental health, autism and learning disability services) and Andrew Keefe (deputy director for mental health, autism and learning disability commissioning) presented the independent analysis of the consultation feedback.
