Service User and Carer Reference Group

We believe it is crucial to involve the people accessing Cumbria, Northumberland Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust services in the design, delivery and evaluation of those services, to ensure that the needs of service users and carers are represented and reflected at the heart of everything we do.

The Reference Group is a service user and carer led forum made up of individuals from statutory services, third sector community groups as well as individual carers and service users that work towards continuous improvement of Mental Health Services by utilising the group’s assets and expertise. The Reference Group were fundamental in the development of the Trust’s Together Strategy.
