Focus Logo may 2014.jpg

FoCUS (Forum of Carers and people who Use our Services) is the voice for carers and people who use mental health, learning disability, older people, and drug and alcohol services in Surrey and North East Hampshire, provided by Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.

Public meetings where NHS Managers learn from people who have experienced these services, what works well and what could be improved. FoCUS members are carers and people who use services or have used their services in the last five years. If you are unable to attend meetings you can still be involved. We send regular updates by post or email and you can give us your views. You can also follow us on Twitter @FoCUS_SaBP or like us on Facebook www.facebook.com/FoCUS.SABP
