Mental Health 2017

The two Lay Board Members for Patient & Public Involvement for North Staffordshire & Stoke on Trent Clinical Commissioning Groups are involving the public in putting mental health services under the microscope. They have recruited ten people to act as members of a citizens’ jury on mental health services in Northern Staffordshire.  The jury is a group of people who have experience of mental health services, either as patients or carers and also people with no experience but who have an interest in health care.

The role of jury is to develop recommendations which will be presented to the Joint Clinical Commissioning groups’ Governing body to inform the commissioning of mental health services.

Access to Appropriate Adult Mental Health Services


The Citizens Jury, which is putting access to adult mental health services under the microscope in Stoke on Trent and North Staffordshire, is looking for people to provide evidence.

This initiative is calling for people who have experienced mental health services as a patient or carer, or who simply have opinions about the services provided to. Complete a short online survey here.


Our thanks to Staffordshire Fire & Rescue Service for supporting the project by working with us as Clerk to the Jury.
