PATIENTS who use mental health services in Huddersfield are being asked for their views as part of a wide- ranging review.
The review team has promised to publish its findings - warts and all.
Sir Ian Kennedy, chairman of the Healthcare Commission, said: "The commission will seek to promote improvement by sharing what it finds.
"Our approach will always be that if we see good practice we celebrate. If bad, we will point it out. We will not be slow to speak as we find."
In addition to patients, the review team will speak to NHS workers at the South- West Yorkshire Mental Health Trust about the condition of clinics and wards, management, risk to patients and opportunities for staff development.
The Healthcare Commission was launched in April to promote improvement in healthcare across England and Wales.
Sir Ian added: "We aim to focus on patients in everything we do.
"That is why an important part of our review is to ask them about their experiences of mental health services."
Patients, carers and staff can give their views in a variety of ways, such as letter, email or phone.
Alternatively, they can speak to a member of the review team in a confidential one-to-one meeting.
The meetings in Huddersfield will be held on Thursday, September 30.
The scrutiny of services, known as a clinical governance review, is part of a programme that involves the commission visiting every NHS organisation in England.
Judith Young, the trust's chief executive, said: ``The review is an opportunity for us to demonstrate good practice. But it will also help us identify areas where there is room for improvement. `'
