Public consultation report on creation of a single ‘hub’ for urgent mental health services in Derby

Woman in recovery

The Trust has recently been undertaking a transformational change programme where stakeholders have worked together to develop a new model of service delivery for urgent care services.  We believe that these changes are essential to improve our services. They will enable a focus on recovery and wellbeing, which is about rebuilding a life and/or recovering a life beyond any experience of poor mental health. Our plan to achieve this focus on recovery includes the development of a Recovery and Resilience Hub for Derby and South Derbyshire residents, located within the Radbourne Unit on the Royal Derby Hospital site.

The new model for the Recovery and Resilience Hub was developed using feedback from former service users, that upon discharge from the Radbourne Unit, Royal Derby Hospital Site, Derby, they often felt isolated from the community and unable to continue with their recovery unsupported. It was also apparent that the services at the Day Hospital, London Road, Derby, were greatly under-utilised and had the potential to reach, and help, far more people using the service on their journey to recovery.

Informal public consultation on the proposed Recovery and Resilience Hub commenced on 1 September 2014 and closed on 24 October 2014.

This report presents the background to the proposal, details the methods employed to gain feedback on our plans and summarises the public responses we have received.  It also provides responses to the questions, comments and alternative suggestions received during the consultation.

Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust extends its thanks to everyone who participated in the public consultation regarding the development of a new Recovery and Resilience Hub.
