Service User Advisory Groups – Meetings held in October 2013Posted: November 12, 2013
The departments that manage the services at South London & Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust have ‘advisory groups’ where service users and carers come together to advise on and discuss developments.
The Mood, Anxiety & Personality (MAP) Clinical Academic Group – is an organisational structure which manages services for mood, anxiety & personality disorder across the South London & Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM). Most advisory group members have experience of using mental health services or of being a family member/carer of someone who does. Other members include senior managers. They meet every month and their aim is to keep the views of service users at the heart of all service developments and improvements. To make sure that people know what is being discussed in their meetings the group produces a brief summary of their discussions.

Advisory group members have experience of services either as service users or family members/carers. They work with the senior managers to keep the views of service users and carers at the heart of all service developments and improvements. To make sure that people know what is being discussed the group produces a brief summary of their discussion.
