Norfolk and Waveney residents urged to take part in Wellbeing Service consultation

A public consultation on the future of Norfolk and Waveney's Wellbeing Service is drawing to a close.

People have just over two more weeks to have their say on a formal consultation about local NHS services for people who have anxieties or depression.

The service, also known as Improving Access to Psychological Therapies, provides support for individuals aged 16 years or older who face mild and moderate mental health challenges such as depression and anxiety.

The consultation is being run by Norfolk and Waveney's five Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and will close on January 31.

The CCGs are reviewing the way the Wellbeing Service is provided and how people and carers use the service or might choose to use the service in the future.

Anoop Dhesi, chairman of North Norfolk CCG said: 'One option for the future might be to extend the service to help more people, it really is important to have your say.'
