The issues which have arisen since the cessation of public and AWP NHS Trust provided transport to the Callington Road Hospital site in South Bristol have been a hot topic amongst members of the Bristol Independent Mental Health Network (BIMHN) and other groups across the city! These services were vital in aiding peoples recovery from mental health problems and being unable to access the hospital is a barrier to their recovery.
The cuts to these services have resulted in those who do not or cannot drive needing to walk over half a mile from the nearest bus stop to the hospital – this may not seem like much but some service users have mobility issues or are vulnerable! Service users, visitors and staff should not be expected to walk through an area the local police acknowledge as dangerous and discourage individuals from walking there.
This event is aiming to bring these campaigners and allies together with some of those behind the cuts in service to firstly outline the issue and why these issues are neccessary to be addressed, secondly find out exactly what led to these descisions being made and finally, to hopsefully reach a compromise with aims and objectives to work towards to improve the care provided to those in Bristol experienceing poor mental health.
Whilst we hope there will be an opportunity on the night for questions from you, our guests, to ensure all key themes are addressed, BIMHN would like to invite you to submit questions before the event via email@example.com.
If you have any accessibility requirements or would like any further information surrounding the Callington Road Bus campaign or any oher campaigns BIMHN will be involved in please do not hesitate to get in touch with Amelia (Campaigns Officer) through firstname.lastname@example.org.
