BSMHFT shortlisted for three Patient Safety Awards

March 4, 2011

It has been demonstrated that a great deal of innovative work is being undertaken across the NHS that improves patient safety and empowers staff to make this a priority. The Patient Safety Awards aim to recognise the best examples of this work, and to disseminate it more widely within the healthcare community so that it can be replicated or adapted for use elsewhere.

Patient Safety Awards
Congratulations are in order for three teams who have been shortlisted in the Patient Safety in Mental Health category: Dr Kay Garvey and Nicola Fowler with their work on managing destructive conflict and bullying in forensic in-patient settings and Dr Hilary Grant and Fiona McGruer for her work on multiagency working to promote patient, staff and public safety in forensic child and adolescent mental health service.

Also shortlisted were Sharon Duffy, Rosemary Brown and Sarah Smith in the Infection Control and Hygiene category for their campaign around the cleaning strategy called Strictly Come Cleaning. 

All teams have travelled down to London and give a short presentation on their project in hope of securing a prestigious award.

Good luck to you all!
