The NHS in Devon is working on a Mental Health and Wellbeing Strategy, which will set out the vision and priorities for mental health and wellbeing across Devon. We’d like your help to develop and finalise key parts of the strategy – Click here to find out more and get involved.

Involvement in Devon

We believe that involving all our communities meaningfully is essential to effective service improvement and transformation.

We will involve a wide range of people, including staff and local decision-makers, as we develop our STP.

Patient representatives will work alongside clinicians on our working groups, and we will talk to people to understand what the impact of any potential changes would be on them.

In some cases, there may be the need for a formal consultation and this will this will be planned and undertaken to meet all the statutory requirements relating to NHS service changes. This will include engaging widely with service users, clinicians, staff, unions, representative groups and the public.

The experience and expertise of our staff, clinicians and stakeholders, and the views of our patients and the public will help us to collectively design solutions to the problems identified in the STP.

We believe that the result of this process will be better quality care that meets the needs of our communities.
