Newham Centre for Mental Health – Ideas to Improve Observation Practice

By Nichole Hendricks-Abulime (Mental Health Nurse) Morgan Duffield (Life Skills Recovery Worker), Omolara Makanjuola (Health Care Assistant) and Lucy Brewer (Improvement Advisor)

In this short 2-minute video, staff describe some of the ideas they are testing to address this issue and any challenges they have faced.
