A REVIEW has been launched of mental health services in Oxfordshire.

Patients, carers and staff are being asked by charity Oxfordshire Mind for their views on changes to their services since new partnerships were introduced more than two years ago.

Oxfordshire Mind Wellbeing Service is made up of two partnerships, both contracted by Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust.

The new contracts came into effect in 2016 and run to 2020.

TalkingSpace Plus Partnership helps people with depression and anxiety get access to a range of therapies and wellbeing activities.

The Oxfordshire Mental Health Partnership, meanwhile, brings together staff at the trust and workers at Oxfordshire Mind, as well as other charities Response, Restore, Connection Floating Support and Elmore Community Services.

Rather than referring patients with severe mental health problems between them, they work together in the same teams.

The aims of the review are to look at how the wellbeing service is currently operating within these partnership arrangements, consider further links and agree future development of the service.

There are three surveys- one for service users, one for carers and one for mental health organisation staff.

They are available online at oxfordshiremind.org.uk/wellbeing-review/
