CWP publishes Big Book of Best Practice 2017/18

by CWP News - 16 October 2017

We have published a new book highlighting some of our finest work over the last year.

The Big Book of Best Practice 2017/18 – developed by staff at CWP – demonstrates examples of the trust’s leading clinical practice that have achieved particularly positive outcomes for people accessing the trust’s services, their carers and families.

It aims not only to celebrate the work of CWP staff but also to encourage the sharing of innovative ideas across different teams and organisations to help improve health and wellbeing for the wider region.

The book, which is CWP’s fifth annual publication, was launched at a recent exhibition event at Macclesfield Town Hall, which saw over 200 patients, staff, partners and members of the public come together to share ‘what good looks like’ in healthcare.

Dr Anushta Sivananthan, CWP Medical Director, said: “Our staff have wholeheartedly embraced the values that the Big Book of Best Practice represents. Sharing good practice and learning from experience is a huge part of our culture at CWP. The book is one of our highlights of the year that showcases continuous quality improvement of services. I’d recommend anyone interested in how we can further improve care for the people we serve to read it and see the inspiring work of our staff and people who access our services.

“Our launch event this year in Macclesfield was another huge success and I’d like to thank all staff, partners, families and carers who made it such a wonderful day.”

To help kick off the Big Book’s launch event, we were joined by Macclesfield MP David Rutley. Mr Rutley said: “It was an honour to open this year’s CWP Best Practice Showcase and to learn more about the wide range of important services the organisation offers. There were impressive case studies that showed how CWP staff are working hard to provide high quality mental health care. I look forward to continuing to work with CWP in the months ahead, to help respond to these important health challenges in our community.”

Our Big Book of Best Practice is inspired by our Zero Harm campaign. Zero Harm’s key message is ‘Stop. Think. Listen’, which involves supporting everyone to deliver the best care possible, as safely as possible to reduce avoidable harm.
