Forums

Our two main consultation forums are the Nottingham City Drug and Ex-Drug User Forum, which started in 2004 and the Dual Diagnosis Forum, which started in 2007. Both offer an opportunity for current and former drug users, whether they are in treatment or not to have their say in the strategic decision making processes of the commissioning bodies locally. Their aim is to improve local service provision and to be a two way channel for information. Since 2012 an independent user led forum has been set up for patients in Shared Care, called SCUF. In April 2013 SCUF stopped being responsible for shared care. It has changed its remit and is carrying on its work around campaigning, anti stigma and harm reduction. It is now called Substance Campaigns, User Friendly. Since 2014 the CDP have also run an Alcohol Panel. This is a closed forum of invited former and current service users who act as an advisory group to the partnership.
