We have received a joint response on our Dignity and Self-Harm report. It has come from Buckinghamshire Healthcare Trust, Buckinghamshire Clinical Commissioning Group, and Oxford Health Foundation Trust (Bucks’s mental health care providers) .

We did this report following concerns from a resident about their treatment of self-harm injuries in A&E. With the help of Bucks Mind, we asked 8 people about their experiences of treatment for self-harm injuries. Then, we compared what they said to the NICE guidelines.

In response, the healthcare providers have send us a joint action plan. It outlines the steps they will take to ensure self-harm injuries are treated with care and respect.
