Booking open for George Bryan Centre engagement events page thumbnail

Residents of Burton upon Trent, Lichfield, Tamworth and surrounding areas are being asked for their views on mental health services. The work is part of the process to identify the long-term solution for services formerly provided at the George Bryan Centre.

A fire destroyed one wing of the centre in February 2019. Since then, an enhanced community-based mental health service has been provided and some patients have received services at St George’s Hospital in Stafford.

Anyone with an interest in mental health services in this area can now register to take part in the events being held in October.

Lisa Agell, Operations Director for Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, which operated the centre, said: “Just after the fire, we listened to people’s experience of our services with a view to using this feedback to develop long-term proposals. However, the COVID-19 pandemic meant this work had to be put on hold; we are now restarting the discussion.”

The events will be held using Microsoft Teams on Thursday 14 October from 1.30pm - 3.30pm and Monday 18 October, 9am – 11am. Both events are the same and so you only need to attend one.

You can register and find more information in our getting involved section.  

Dr Shammy Noor, Chair of South East Staffordshire and Seisdon Peninsula CCG, added: “This is about taking services to a really local level, focussing on prevention and making sure we are delivering personalised care based on the needs of every individual patient. At this stage in the process, we are doing a sense-check to understand if there is anything new we should consider as we develop our proposals.

“We want to hear from anyone who has a view about mental health services and lives in Burton, Lichfield, Tamworth and surrounding areas.

“No decisions have been made but by telling us what you think you can help us shape the future of mental health services.

“The comments we receive over the coming weeks will be used by the Trust and the Clinical Commissioning Groups to inform the development of proposals for the future services. Once the final proposals are developed, we will want to involve staff, service users, carers and partners before any decisions are made.”
