CQC asks for patient views on mental health

Monday, July 4, 2016

Health regulator Care Quality Commission (CQC) is launching a campaign to encourage the public to give their views on mental health treatment.

According the mental health charity Mind, nearly 1 in 4 people in England will experience a mental health problem this year.

CQC want people who are seeking treatment and support for low mood, anxiety, stress and other mental health conditions to tell them about their experiences of health and social care.

  • Is it easy to make an appointment with your GP?
  • Do you feel that you have a say in your treatment and/or support options?
  • Do you feel healthcare professionals listen to you and take you seriously?

CQC need you to tell them about the care you are receiving, good or bad.

By telling CQC about your experiences, you could stop poor care from happening to someone else.

For more information about CQC’s campaign and how you can feedback about your experiences of care, visit the website and tweet @CareQualityComm using #YourMentalHealthCare.
