Step up to Great Mental Health consultation

This consultation is about proposals to invest and improve adult mental health services for people in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland when their need is urgent or they need planned care and treatment.

Mental health problems represent the largest single cause of disability in the UK. One in four adults experiences at least one diagnosable mental health problem in any given year. We have been listening to what people want from their local mental health services.

This consultation proposes to join up mental health services with physical health and social services to improve the health and wellbeing of local people. The proposals consider how best to improve care – in people’s homes, the community and hospital. Wherever possible, we want people to be seen at home or in the community to avoid them being admitted to hospital.

We really want as many people as possible to share their views and help shape our future mental health services to make sure people get the right care, in the right place, at the right time.

As clinical commissioning groups, we have a legal responsibility – and as a moral duty – to involve people in a public consultation when considering significant changes to NHS services.
