Cllr Mohammed Javed declared a disclosable pecuniary interest as he was employed by Tees, Esk and Wear Valley NHS Foundation Trust. Cllr Javed had been granted a dispensation in this regard.

Members were requested to consider and comment on the consultation plan and document.

The proposals for potential changes to the Adult Mental Health Services have been approved in principle by Cabinet on 7th February and a thorough consultation approach was now essential to support the review by seeking views on the proposals to inform the final decision making process. The consultation approach needed to be capable of standing up to challenge in terms of content and process.

It was best practice that the second phase of public consultation on the proposed changes to Adult Mental Health Services was conducted over 12 weeks. The phase 2 public consultation was planned to begin on 18th March and close on 7th June, 2013.

The Committee discussed the role to the volunteers at Norton Road and wanted to ensure that their work was appropriately recognised, and that future opportunities for them should be identified should there be changes to current services.
