Summary of report content

Healthwatch Bristol is here to demonstrably influence commissioning, service provision or strategic decision making and this report outlines how we will achieve this following on from the Brunel Neurological Alliance study day in May, which focused on mental health and wellbeing for people with neurological conditions. The study day was partially funded by the Healthwatch Bristol Community Pot grant. Healthwatch Bristol will make use of our statutory powers and the information shared with them, to help to set the commissioning agenda for the future, putting local people at the heart of decision-making. On Thursday 17 May 2018, The Brunel Neurological hosted a study day at The West of England MS Therapy Centre. The event was sponsored by Healthwatch Bristol and TFT Property and Construction Consultants. The focus of the study day was on mental health and wellbeing and the aim was to provide a deeper understanding of the impact of neurological conditions on a person’s mental health and wellbeing and vice-versa. The target audience were healthcare professionals who may come across patients/clients affected by a neurological condition. In total 84 people attended the event compared to 64 people in 2016.
