SLaM, the local main mental health provider of inpatient and community services, will be inspected by the CQC during the week of 23 September 2015. The Healthwatch partners in Southwark and Lewisham will collect patient and carer feedback and experiences to help guide this inspection. CQC are the national inspectors of all health and social care services, and all hospitals must be registered and inspected by them. Before any inspection, CQC asks for patient feedback from local Healthwatches and other stakeholders, to help inform their inspection, i.e. what areas, services and departments they should be focusing on. We will be submitting a report based on patient and public feedback. Healthwatch wants to hear from patients, carers and family members, who have recently (within the last year) used mental health services provided by SLaM. These include: any inpatient services and any outpatient and psychiatric liaison services at hospital sites.
