Adult Psychological services in Calderdale


Help Calderdale CCG to review adult psychological services


 Calderdale Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is reviewing the adult psychological services it commissions (buys). Psychological services include talking therapies, such as counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and specialist assessments and treatments. The CCG commissions these services from South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (SWYPFT) and Insight Healthcare and makes a contribution to services provided by WomenCentre.


 


The CCG knows it can do better; sometimes people have to wait too long for psychological services and not everybody gets the right service that they need. This needs to change and the CCG will work with local people and its partners to make things better.


 


The CCG wants people to give their views about its adult psychological services. It wants, in particular, to hear from people who use or who have used psychological services in Calderdale.


 


The CCG is holding two engagement drop-in sessions where people can come along and talk about their experience of services and ideas for improvements:



  • Monday 9th April  from 1.30pm to 4.30pm at the Shay Stadium, Shaw Hill, Halifax HX1 2YS

  • Queens Road Neighbourhood Centre on Thursday 19th April from 12 noon to 1.30pm

  • Thursday 19th April from 6.00pm to 9.00pm at Todmorden Town Hall, Bridge Street, Todmorden OL14 5AQ



 


The CCG is also running a survey which can be accessed at www.calderdaleccg.nhs.uk/mentalhealth


 


The engagement will close at midday on 24th April 2018.

Summary Care Record

There is a new Central NHS Computer System called the Summary Care Record (SCR). It is an electronic record which contains information about the medicines you take, allergies you suffer from and any bad reactions to medicines you have had.

 

Why do I need a Summary Care Record?

Storing information in one place makes it easier for healthcare staff to treat you in an emergency, or when your GP practice is closed.

This information could make a difference to how a doctor decides to care for you, for example which medicines they choose to prescribe for you.

Who can see it?

Only healthcare staff involved in your care can see your Summary Care Record. 

 

How do I know if I have one?

Over half of the population of England now have a Summary Care Record. You can find out whether Summary Care Records have come to your area by looking at our interactive map or by asking your GP

Do I have to have one?

No, it is not compulsory. If you choose to opt out of the scheme, then you will need to complete a form and bring it along to the surgery. You can use the form at the foot of this page.
