Patient forum

NHS England mental health good practice case study, November 2018: Patient Forum helps improve NHS mental health services. Read more here.


The Oxford AHSN Anxiety and Depression Clinical Network is fortunate to have an active patient forum with membership of ex-service users and patient involvement representatives from all IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) services across the Thames Valley and Milton Keynes.

Patient forum meetings are held every few months. The forum is consulted on network activity and forum-led projects are taken forward. These included a ‘maintaining therapeutic gains’ questionnaire which aims to gain a much more detailed understanding of what patients need to stay well after discharge.
