We have made a short film of the day – we hope it gives you a real feel for the day.
The energy, pride and enthusiasm in the room was fantastic. http://youtu.be/k8kNq9b3UOY
The overall winners from each category were:
Street triage for people in mental health crisis – A scheme that prevents people who are having a mental health crisis being detained in police custody.
Dining companions – A programme where volunteers help on wards at mealtimes, specifically to help patients eat their meals or even just keep them company.
Promoting the links between mental health and activity – An annual event of sports activities that make people feel able to connect with others, have fun and not feel so isolated in such a rural location.
Reliably finding out “what matters” to older people in hospital – Posters displayed above a person’s bed to remind anyone supporting that patient of the things that are important to the people in their ward.
The SAFER patient flow bundle – A set of simple rules that, if followed routinely, will help improve patient flow, patient experience and reduce length of stay across adult inpatient wards in acute hospitals.
School nurses supporting well being of young carers – A pathway designed to support integrated working between the school nursing service, other public health nurses and partners in supporting young carers and their families.
– A series of projects at Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust that aim to improve patient experience.
