NHS Trust launches Big Book
of Best Practice
LOCAL Health Trust CWP has published a
new book highlighting some of the organisation's finest work over the last year.
The Big Book of Best Practice 2017/18; developed by staff, at Cheshire and
Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (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.
We are told that 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 5th 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, CWP were joined by local 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
CWP's Big Book of Best Practice is inspired by the Trust's 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.
CWP delivers mental health, substance misuse, learning disability and community
physical health services to the people of Cheshire, Wirral and wider region. You
