The Oxfordshire Mind Wellbeing Service is delivered through two Partnerships, both contracted by Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust. The TalkingSpace Plus Partnership contracts Wellbeing Services for people with depression and anxiety (clusters 0-3), the Oxfordshire Mental Health Partnership contracts Wellbeing Services for people with severe mental health issues (clusters 4-17). Oxfordshire Mind also receives income from fundraising and trusts which supplements the income from these contracts and enables more service users to be helped.
The new contracts came into effect in 2016 and run to 2020.
The new arrangements have required significant changes particularly with regard to partnership working, and the Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group and Oxford Health have therefore requested a review of these new arrangements and the Wellbeing Service as a whole.
The review is aimed at determining how to achieve the best outcomes for the highest numbers of service users, and specifically it is not a cost-cutting exercise.
The aims of the review are to:
- Consider how the Wellbeing Service is operating within both partnership arrangements
- Consider links to the external world
- Agree future developments of the Service
The review will include wide-ranging consultation with service users, family and friends, carers, staff members, partners, and other external organisations and is a joint piece of work between Oxfordshire Mind, Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group and Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust.
