Mental Health Services for Older People

On 1 December the NHS Derby and Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group launched a consultation on Mental Health Services for Older People.

This consultation is asking local people to share their views on proposals to relocate two services for older people with mental health conditions to new facilities in the county. 

The proposal is that services move from Pleasley Ward at the Hartington Unit in Chesterfield, to Walton Hospital in Chesterfield and Ward 1 at London Road Community Hospital Derby to Tissington House at Kingsway Hospital in Derby.

Information can be found on https://www.derbyshirehealthcareft.nhs.uk/get-involved/public-consultations/proposed-service-relocations which includes a link to an online survey and other ways to feedback.

The consultation will run until 1 February so there is still time to give your comments.

If you have any questions or would like to feedback in another way, please contact ddccg.enquiries@nhs.net
