What will I gain?

At the South London Mental Health Patient Safety Network event, we hope to create stimulating conversations around mental health safety improvement. With a specific focus on reducing restrictive practice, you will have chance to hear directly from colleagues about leading examples of work locally, as well as discuss some of your own insights, experiences and challenges.

You will takeaway a range of practical examples, ideas and techniques in improving safety in mental health settings, ready to share with colleagues and test locally.

We will also be introducing the new, national, Mental Health Safety Improvement Programme (MHSIP), the south London Reducing Restrictive Practice Quality Improvement Collaborative and what future opportunities lie ahead for south London.

Watch this space for future updates and what expert speakers we have in store.
