Proposed changes to mental health services in Norfolk and Suffolk

Proposed Trust Service Strategy

Trust Service Strategy – how you can have your say
Clinicians in Norfolk and Suffolk have been proposing changes to mental health services for the next four years. The proposals were sparked by budget challenges facing the whole of the NHS – NSFT is facing a 20% reduction in its spend in four years’ time compared with today.

But rather than just make cuts, our clinicians are seeing this as an opportunity to redesign services which are fit for the future and offer real alternatives to hospital care and the care we currently provide. Everything has to fit within our new budgets, but of more importance is the need to make sure all services provide good and safe outcomes for service users and their family carers.
