Therapeutic day

In 2015, an initiative to improve staffing within inpatient wards was piloted and the therapeutic staffing model was born. 

The therapeutic staffing initiative has transformed the way the Trust shapes delivery of its services within its inpatient units. This new way of working has established teams of mixed expertise from nursing, healthcare administrators, therapists, psychiatrists and psychologists - each person bringing their individuality and expertise to the team. Whilst individuality is celebrated, one thing remains consistent - each person has at their heart an abundance of dedication and enthusiasm to embed improved services for those who really need it.

Listen to our staff and hear how therapeutic staffing has transformed their lives and the lives of our patients and carers.
