BEH on Panorama

Our Trust was featured on a BBC Panorama programme highlighting the pressures of Britain’s Mental Health system through the eyes of staff and our patients.  The half hour documentary, first airing on Monday 26th October at 8:30pm on BBC1, is available on BBC iPlayer.

The film focusses on patients as they go through the mental health system and demonstrates the quality of care provided by our staff, sometimes in challenging circumstances.

The Panorama team made the film over several months following a number of patients on our wards, and in the community. They also filmed a number of people brought in by the police to a place of safety under a Section 136.

Maria Kane, Chief Executive of Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health Trust says: “The documentary is a fair portrayal of what it is like for staff on the front line, in acute care, in the community, and for the bed management teams facing the pressures of increasing admissions.

“The documentary clearly shows the quality of care our staff provide and how they maintain this, often in difficult situations.

“I think the documentary makers have captured a really important feature of the Trust, that the staff provide compassionate and excellent quality care, while showing a genuine concern for patients.

“It also, importantly, puts mental health once again on the national agenda.”
