Bradgate Mental Health Unit Service
Healthwatch Leicestershire is working with local people to shape and improve the development and delivery of local services. This includes understanding people's experiences of the services and making recommendations where applicable. This survey asks for your views on the Bradgate Mental Health Unit. Healthwatch is concerned about the unit following an inspection by the Care Quality Commission in February 2017 who reported the service required improvement. The information you provide will be used to help improve service delivery at the unit:

Mobile library service

The Mobile Library Service currently visits around 250 communities across Leicestershire and makes circa 400 individual stops. It has been ascertained that 14% of these stops attract no visitors and that 46% of stops there are less than three customers. An indicative cost per unique service user is around £190.

It is therefore proposed to review the Mobile Library Service to explore the options for reducing costs and increasing engagement. The review will focus on streamlining the service to reduce staffing and vehicle costs, but may also include options to decommission aspects of the service. Engagement with users of the service will form part of the review.
Deadline to be confirmed
