Adult Psychological services in Calderdale


Help Calderdale CCG to review adult psychological services


 Calderdale Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is reviewing the adult psychological services it commissions (buys). Psychological services include talking therapies, such as counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and specialist assessments and treatments. The CCG commissions these services from South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (SWYPFT) and Insight Healthcare and makes a contribution to services provided by WomenCentre.


 


The CCG knows it can do better; sometimes people have to wait too long for psychological services and not everybody gets the right service that they need. This needs to change and the CCG will work with local people and its partners to make things better.


 


The CCG wants people to give their views about its adult psychological services. It wants, in particular, to hear from people who use or who have used psychological services in Calderdale.


 


The CCG is holding two engagement drop-in sessions where people can come along and talk about their experience of services and ideas for improvements:



  • Monday 9th April  from 1.30pm to 4.30pm at the Shay Stadium, Shaw Hill, Halifax HX1 2YS

  • Queens Road Neighbourhood Centre on Thursday 19th April from 12 noon to 1.30pm

  • Thursday 19th April from 6.00pm to 9.00pm at Todmorden Town Hall, Bridge Street, Todmorden OL14 5AQ



 


The CCG is also running a survey which can be accessed at www.calderdaleccg.nhs.uk/mentalhealth


 


The engagement will close at midday on 24th April 2018.
