CWP leading the way in national best practice
A number of best practice examples from CWP can be found in a new publication which aims to help mental health trusts across the country improve services.
Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (CWP), alongside eight other mental health trusts, partnered with NHS Improvement to pull together learning which has helped them improve the services they offer. CWP shared a total of 9 case studies – the most to appear in the document – and a number of resources and helpful quotes to support those looking to implement change.
Many of CWP’s case studies reflect the trusts commitment in involving people who access services, their carers and families in decisions about changes to the care they receive. These include case studies into improving initial mental health assessments using experience-based design, improving the dementia pathway and improving the effectiveness of pre-admission assessments.
Also featured in the publication is CWP’s Big Book of Best Practice, which features further case studies from around the trust which aim to demonstrate examples of leading clinical practice and facilitate the sharing of innovative ideas.
Sheena Cumiskey, Chief Executive of CWP, said: “It’s been an honour to work with NHS Improvement and other partners to create a resource that will help shape mental health services in future. Our Trust prides itself on working with those who use services, their families and carers to improve services and this resource is a great reflection of that work.”
The publication was launched by NHS Improvement on 28 March and is available to download at: https://improvement.nhs.uk/resources/valued-care-mental-health-improving-excellence/
