People’s experiences of the care they receive from community-based mental health services have continued to deteriorate, according to an annual survey from the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

The survey published today (Thursday 22 November) highlights concerns around access to care, care planning and support for people with mental health conditions in relation to physical health needs, financial advice or benefits.



We need two more volunteers to join our PLACE assessment team.

Healthwatch Camden volunteers go to PLACE visits at local hospitals every year to provide a patient perspective. You’ll go into a local hospital as part of a team to assess how the environment supports patients’ privacy and dignity. You’ll also look at things like food, cleanliness and general building maintenance.


Electronic patient record (EPR)

We’re launching our new electronic patient record (EPR) system so we can offer you safer care and improved outcomes and experience. It is an important milestone on our journey to become the most digitally advanced trust in the NHS by 2020.

What is EPR and how does it improve patient care?


We would greatly appreciate your time in filling in this stakeholder survey. You feedback is really important to Camden MSK as we will use it to continually strive to improve our services and communications.


It should take less than 2 minutes of your time.
