Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust –
Health Based Place of Safety survey
Due to quality issues identified by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) following an inspection of Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust (AWP) in 2016 and 2017, NHS England authorised the temporary consolidation of two of three Health Based Place of Safety (HBPoS) Suites in Swindon and Salisbury to a third site in Devizes for 12 months from 26 March 2018.
This will provide an opportunity for organisations to address the CQC’s improvement requirements, particularly around assessment times following a change to the law which states how long a person can be detained for. Further information about the service can be read here.
Have your say via the online survey
As part of the review, members of the public have been asked to complete the online survey: www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/7024O
All responses to the survey are anonymous and will be taken into consideration during the ongoing discussions regarding the future of the Place of Safety Suites in Swindon and Salisbury.
The survey will close on Monday 31 December 2018.
