A look back at 2018
Firstly, thank you all for your support during 2018, Mental Health is always a rewarding and challenging area as you know and we have enjoyed working with you, our team and our Services Users.Our Discharge 2 Assess pathway in partnership with Lancashire Care Foundation Trust has continued to be a resounding success with successful pathways on average at just over 10 weeks upon discharge.
Our Head Chef Samantha Dupuis has done an amazing job raising over £350 for charities including The Autistic Society, Macmillan and Bury Hospice.
We waved a fond farewell to Dr Peter Marshall after nearly 5 years although the door is open for holiday cover which is great. We welcomed Dr Deepak Gupta who has come highly recommended, hitting the ground running with clinical handover and new assessments for us on The Hamptons.
We welcomed Derek to our service, our very own black Labrador who has been going out on regular walks with patients and is a very popular addition.
Looking ahead to 2019
We are busy preparing for our next inspection on Brookhaven and are striving towards an Outstanding Rating. We continue to work through our Champions Clinical and Therapeutic improvement model having just completed milestone 2 of 5. Part of milestone 3 will be looking at further roll out of our electronic systems for medication management and care planning.
