EDP: Public consultation results will play ‘incredibly important’ part in future of mental health services in Great Yarmouth and Waveney

We’ve said it before but it is worth saying again: congratulations to HealthEast for being the only CCG of the seven in Norfolk & Suffolk to hold open and properly recorded public consultation meetings on the radical redesign proposals which Norfolk & Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust (NSFT) pushed through without any meaningful public consultation: closing wards, making staff redundant and creating a mental health care catastrophe.

“Members of HealthEast – the Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) – met today to discuss the results of a public consultation in which 80pc of respondents disagreed with Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust proposals to cut the number of adult acute beds from 28 to 20.

More than 1,000 people took part in the consultation, with 78pc disagreeing with a plan to close two wards at Carlton Court, near Lowestoft, for older people or patients with dementia.”
