Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group (OCCG) would like your views on the proposed outcomes and measures for mental health services in Oxfordshire. 

In January 2013 OCCG ran an engagement event introducing the concept of outcomes based commissioning (OBC) and looked at how this could be applied to a number of health areas – including mental health, to gain an initial sense of which outcomes people thought were important. 

A group of clinicians, social workers and mental health practitioners have looked at what has been said so far and worked up a number of suggested outcomes and ways to measure them that we would like to test as part of this engagement.

What we have done is try to identify:

the high level outcome for mental health that will tell us that someone is moving towards recovery and wellbeing.

why these are important to people in Oxfordshire and how they link to national priorities.

some suggestions about how we might measure these broad outcomes.

We would now like to get your views on the proposed outcomes and measures for mental health.
