Northumberland, Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust is developing their database of services available in the community, to which organisations can add their own details by completing a questionnaire. The database is free for all to access at http://www.ntw.nhs.uk/pic/.
The Trust also hosts a bi-monthly meeting in Newcastle, called the ‘Service user and Carer Reference group’, as a forum for service users, carers and the services people access to support the development of the existing services offered by the Trust and to discuss any plans for changes to existing services.
The next Service user and Carer Reference group meeting is to be held on: Thursday 3rd March, 10:00am at the Assembly Rooms, Newcastle.
At the meeting, the group will review the terms of reference and discuss any proposed changes to the existing format to make it more accessible for everybody.
