BEH Internal Professional Standards for the Acute Mental Health Pathway

Date: 11 August 2020

At BEH, we are continually looking at ways to improve our services through ongoing review and improvements in the way we work.

We have recently launched Internal Professional Standards for the Acute Mental Health Pathway to make sure we provide consistent and timely high quality care for all service users and avoid out of area placements for those who need hospital admission.

The standards introduce a new way of focusing on how we work with each other and how we use current systems and processes.

This will help deliver the following:

  • timely care at each stage of the acute mental health pathway and improved patient experience;
  • better communication between staff, providing a more positive working environment where staff feel they are valued and make a real difference;
  • improved organisational culture which is in line with our Trust values, leading to better patient and staff experience.
