This service evaluation aims to gain service users’ and staff members’ perspectives on one forensic mental health service’s approach to recovery; to provide feedback about awareness of recovery, what has worked well and what needs improving; and to ensure the service’s recovery action plan is shaped by and is responsive to the needs of those it affects. Surveys for staff and service users were developed and disseminated to all. The responses revealed positive outcomes in relation to the awareness of recovery and the use of the Mental Health Recovery Star tool at the service. Areas where there was a need for improvement were highlighted and have informed recommendations.
