HOSC Working Group – Mental Health Services

Purpose of committee

To create a collaborative responsive working group for members to consult, inform, fact find and learn about mental health service provision (NHS, LA and voluntary sector) in Thurrock, and to understand the existing mechanisms in place for governance and oversight of mental health service delivery.


The group will evaluate learning from professional, multiagency, and integrated locality MDTs across the four localities in Thurrock which aim to enable early identification and prevention and thereby support individuals within the communities to find the bespoke solutions. Furthermore, the group together with Healthwatch and key voluntary organisations will look at community themes and voices of those using the services.


Aligned to the Better Care Together Thurrock Strategy and associated Integrated locality Working Board covering Chapters 7 & 8 of the strategy, the group will report into the Better Care. Together Executive. The outcome of the working group would be to provide a report on the summary themes and recommend further action to the Health and Overview Scrutiny Committee.
