Ahead of world mental health day, patient watchdog Healthwatch Derbyshire is holding a public Question Time-style debate on mental health services in the County.

The event, being held on Thursday 8th October, gives people the opportunity to question key mental health leads about the services available in Derbyshire.  Carolyn Green, Director of Nursing and Patient Experience, from Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust will head the panel.  She will be supported by additional colleagues from the Trust, along with Hardwick Clinical Commissioning Group and other key partners.

John Simmons, Chairman of Healthwatch Derbyshire, said: “I encourage people to go along and attend the event in Chesterfield. It’s a chance to question the people responsible for running Derbyshire’s mental health services and provides a great opportunity to find out what support is available to people with a mental health condition.”

The event will include talks from inspirational speaker, Pam Burrows, on how to boost your mood and will also be used by Healthwatch Derbyshire to hold their AGM and launch their new website.  The website features an easy to use feedback centre where people can leave reviews about their local health and social care services.

If you would like to attend the event, please call Healthwatch Derbyshire on 01773 880786 or email tammi@healthwatchderbyshire.co.uk to book your place.
