NHS mental health day services in Staffordshire b77
On the South Staffordshire PCT website, there is an engagment document that outlines the intention for the commissioning board to agree to close 6 day services provided by South Staffs and Shropshire healthcare NHS foundation trust by 1 May as well as another day centre on July 1 and a group for people who have supported employment by 1 December.
The engagement document which is a public one seeks the views of service users and shows they are collectivley overwhelmingly against these cuts and the offer of 3rd sector services supporting these people. It is mentioned on several occassions throughout the document that the main benefit for this proposal is financial and is therefore a clear cut.
a saving of 1 million a year.
