The first ever physical health learning workshop event was held last week (Friday 31 January), to share learning across teams and services to improve physical health in mental health services.

Led by Dr Ed Beveridge, Clinical Lead for Physical Health in Mental Health Services and the Quality Team, it was an opportunity for staff to come together and share areas of their work to achieve one of the Trust’s top quality priorities.physicalhealthlearningevent030120.jpg

Teams from Tasman and Brent inpatient services showcased their incredible work with patients to reduce smoking and increase a healthy nutrition lifestyle.

Onome Usen and Jude Anaedu who both work on Tasman ward presented changes they made as a team.

Nicola Jhumat and Ishmael Mupfupi from Park Royal Mental Health Team shared their learning on reducing patient smoking levels.  They are the first ward to be completely smoke free.


A range of staff members, including nutritionists, dietitians, occupational therapists, and fitness instructors filled the room.
