Welcome to the latest newsletter and a warm welcome to the new members of the network. Continuing out of sync because of the fabulous volume of best practice to share…. I very much enjoyed a visit to Bowmere hospital in Chester, thanks to the modern matron, Colin Jones. But details of that will have to join the orderly queue, and this fortnight we’re featuring the energetic and inspired work going on in Merseycare. Many thanks to Eifion Ingman for sending me the rich information, and for not sounding fed up about the volley of questions he kept getting back from me.
News from trusts – Merseycare.
£7,500 to purchase items that will make a service user’s stay on an acute inpatient ward more therapeutic and pro-active.
Improvements planned by the Star Wards’ group
Implementation of Star Wards
Service User and Carer Information and support
So many fantastic patient-centred initiatives, and an impressive range of partnerships with community groups. We’ll be really interested to hear about how the Star Wards action learning set develops, as along with other innovations, this might well be something that network members would also like to introduce.
All the best
