What our service users & carers have said about involvement: “My involvement with the Trust has enhanced my recovery since my discharge and I feel the best I’ve been in my life” from a service user. “I have found absolute salvation being involved with various carers groups and being involved helped put my mind at rest from personal problems” from a carer.
Recruitment & Selection Background: Historically staff involved service users and carers in recruitment and selection by inviting them to sit on interview panels. Partnership working with HR was undertaken to promote involvement in their documentation and Trust Induction.
Recruitment & Selection Currently: The Medical Education department hold their own database & train service users and carers in recruitment & selection. Work is ongoing obtaining 360 degree feedback on the current interview process. The trust is hoping to arrange a Values Focus Group to involve service users and carers in recruitment of staff on the basis of the Trust Values. A focus group was set up to look at job descriptions to see if they are sufficiently service user / carer focused.

Hospital Liaison Service Update Chris Binns, Operational Service Manager
Hospital Liaison Service Psychiatric liaison services provide mental health care to people being treated for physical health conditions in general hospitals. Mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety, alcohol and memory problems are very common in general hospital. Research has shown that they are often not recognised or treated Untreated mental health issues can lead to longer hospital admission and poorer physical health overall in hospital inpatients and increased health care costs. An effective liaison psychiatry service offers the prospect of saving money as well as improving health.

Whats next... Improving follow up for people who self harm Working with Specialities within the Hospital Development of MUPS service Service Evaluation And hopefully long term funding....

What the people who use our service say…
I was involved in my care, I had choices and options, I could ask questions. I didn’t want to be involved in the CPA but staff helped me understand and I understood it. I liked the staff, they handled situations well when I got upset.
I was sick of stopping in, you had to smoke outside. I used to go to the shops and café with the staff. I was fed up, liked to spend more time outside. Nothing to do sitting bored – chose to watch the TV
Hard Mattress – making my back hurt! Sometimes I didn’t really like the food 50% of people did not like the food!
What we did!
We have ordered some new Mattresses! We have changed the way food is cooked.
We bought a new Computer Touch Screen for everyone to use
We have developed a good timetable of activities!
