Following on from the HFMA’s Mental Health Faculty Forum in November which focused on approaches for achieving financially and clinically sustainable services, we are delighted to announce this upcoming seminar which will continue the theme.
This webinar will focus on the journey of the project, the key lessons learnt and the considerable achievements to date including
• Partnership working: increased the scope and levels of sophistication of partnership working between people with lived experience and professional staff, increasing understanding of the importance of expertise by experience
• Hidden Talents: for statutory staff within NHS Dorset who have lived experience and are involved in challenging stigma and looking at how people can use their experiences within their work
• Lived experience mentors for psychiatrists: a pilot project where people who have accessed the service are coaching psychiatrists on how to work in more recovery orientated ways
• Peer Specialists: continuing to develop peer specialist posts (people with lived experience working in NHS teams modelling recovery)
• Recovery Education Centre (REC): offers co-produced and co-delivered sessions focusing on how to manage your own or support someone else's recovery. The REC has over 1600 students and has recorded impressive feedback
• Personal Health Budget (PHB): the WaRP in partnership with the CCG are an NHS England demonstrator site exploring how PHBs can reduce inpatient admissions and improve personalisation of services.
