Welcome to our website



As you will be aware, #averydifferentconversation has been happening across east and west Suffolk since May 2018.

During the past six months, our partnership - Suffolk User Forum, Suffolk Parent Carer Network, Suffolk Family Carers and Healthwatch Suffolk, along with the NHS Ipswich & East Suffolk and NHS West Suffolk clinical commissioning groups, the Norfolk & Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust and Suffolk County Council - has had 4,430 direct contacts with members of the public, received 737 online survey responses and held more than 40 workshop sessions across the county.  

This wide-ranging engagement has produced a huge amount of data that has been painstakingly and skilfully analysed by Healthwatch Suffolk (HWS).

The partnership has taken the findings from the HWS report and information provided by Public Health Suffolk in the form of its Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) of Mental Health for the county to produce a draft Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing Strategy for east and west Suffolk.
