We will do this while meeting all relevant commissioning standards. We will listen to our patients and use accurate and tmely outcomes data to continually adapt the way we deliver care to best meet our patient needs

We believe every individual has strengths; our treatment programs build on these to help our service users recover.  We want all women in our pathway to have the right care, treatment and support to be able to move into an environment of a lower security, and eventually return to the community. Some exciting opportunities have arisen within the female Mental Health Pathway for Clinical Nurse Leaders.
