Summary of report content
Healthwatch Oxfordshire undertook an Enter and View visit to the South Adult Mental Health Team at Didcot on 19 November 2019. They heard from one patient, one carer and 3 members of staff.
Healthwatch heard very positive feedback about the Adult Mental Health Team, and staff told them they felt it was a supportive and well-led team to work in. Feedback about the Oxfordshire Mental Health Partnership was positive with the introduction of embedded voluntary sector workers being welcomed.
However, waiting lists for the Complex Needs Service could be very long at the expense of both staff and patients. The team was also working on limited resources with no capacity for staff sickness or unexpected crises.
There were 3 recommendations and the report contains a response from the provider.
