Healthwatch Bristol update

December 9, 2015 at 6:16 pm

Healthwatch Bristol’s theme for April to June 2015 was ‘Mental Health and Wellbeing’. They asked you to share your experiences of mental health and wellbeing services.

A quarter report was produced along with engagement summary reports from individual pieces of work completed during the quarter. The reports have been shared with Bristol Mental Health System Lead Team and the Mental Health and Learning Disabilities commissioning team at Bristol CCG.

The Healthwatch Bristol Mental Health and Wellbeing Quarter Report is available at:

The report includes the key themes gathered from members of the public, patients and carers regarding mental health and wellbeing. Individual engagement summary reports relating to mental health and wellbeing are now available ( and include:

  • Healthwatch Bristol Open Meeting 24 June 2015
  • Bristol Multi Faith Forum – Faith and Mental Health
  • WellBeans Words Unspoken
  • Creativi-tea workshop with Self Injury Support

Healthwatch Bristol took your feedback to the organisations that provide and commission mental health services, including Bristol Clinical Commissioning Group, Bristol Mental Health and Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust.

They also spoke to voluntary and community sector organisations to find out what they have been doing. This information be published very soon!

Healthwatch also asked the Health and Wellbeing Board to write to First regarding the lack of bus services to Callington Road. They are still working with the Health and Wellbeing Board to reach a resolution and would welcome BIMHN’s involvement and, in return, offer their support to work together on this issue.
