As part of #valuesweek, staff have been sharing examples of what our values mean to them and their team.

Debbie Sargent, Clinical Education and Workplace Learning Facilitator and the clinical skills team are demonstrating collaboration within the wider healthcare sector with the launch of their Stop and Watch training.

The project introduces a simple tool designed to aid in the early recognition of deterioration into Care Homes and support agencies.

It recognises that carers can spot the signs of deterioration 5 days before a set of observations will and builds confidence in reporting these signs through to the relevant professional.

Debbie feels that putting this training into Care Homes is helping to build better links between CPFT/NCUH and the independent healthcare providers who look after our elderly frail and people living with a learning disability. It is a very exciting opportunity to really show how integrated care can work in practice.

Staff within the GP surgeries have also been invited to attend the workshops and further dates will be advertised on our training and events page.
