The minutes of the last Bedfordshire and Luton Partnership Trust Board meeting were published online today.
At the last Board meeting a suggestion was proposed to enable more people to have access to "talking therapies" by ensuring that those staff who have been trained in the delivery of such therapies allocate time, at a central point, to deliver such therapies to service users.
The document was described as "praiseworthy, well written, creative and it demonstrated initiative". Nonetheless, the decision at the meeting was to talk about the idea some more, to set up a committee to look at it and talk about it and then to talk about it some more.
They also discussed sending more service users "back to primary care". The decision has been taken that as many people as possible who are currently being seen by specialist services will be referred back to GP services. That probably includes people like me. People who GPs have decided need more than they can provide.
Oh, and there is no mention of the survey of those who have used the complaints service. Perhaps because that survey is still not being carried out.
As ever, there is no evidence that issues from previous meetings are followed up and that promised actions take place. "Matters arising" do not include statements that actions promised in previous meetings have (or have not) taken place. No wonder that promised actions can fail to materialise, really.
