– Working together to develop mental health services – workshop
This session from 2-3pm is based on our on patient led clinical education work.
We believe patients / users of services are their own best experts.
Facilitated by Steve Turner (mental health professional) and Sam Williams (mental health service user).
‘We speak out for #patients. Teaching and learning all the time. Transparently, across boundaries. Not afraid to tackle difficult areas and challenge the status quo.’
The session is aimed to gather information and share this openly, to broaden the debate gather ideas, big and small, simple and radical.
Whilst we won’t be able to solve problems in an hour, our objectives are to start identifying the root causes of problems and to identify what works well for users of services. We will continue the conversation on social media.
This session will focus on mental health and the following concerns:
✳️Are #NHS #mental health services in England fit for purpose?
✳️Are mental #health trusts outdated?
We aim to explore this by asking:
✳️If you had a radically chance to change mental health services:
✳️What would you keep?
✳️What would you change?
We will collect all feedback (from before during and after these sessions) and send out a blog on what people said.
Everybody will be included, and all views and comments noted and included in the blog. We will ensure that attendees feel safe to contribute, are reassured that ‘there are no silly questions’ everyone is valued.

Steve Turner’s Biog:
I began my professional career as a nurse in 1984, eventually specialising in mental health.
I spent a decade working on clinical systems for American giant Shared Medical Systems, progressing from project manager to Senior Strategic Services Consultant of the U.S. arm of the company.
In 1999 I returned to work for the NHS, successfully revamping the Information and Technology department at an NHS Trust prior to a trust merger. A spell in consultancy for a large Cancer Network followed, by leading two highly successful multi-organisational projects.
More recently I have led a successful interdisciplinary, multi-organisational prescribing project and the development of a parent held medicines record for children with complex conditions. My Associates and I have also developed, and successfully piloted, ‘patient led clinical medicines reviews’.
I have presented our work at NICE in 2015 and 2018.
In 2018 we were given the #AdsHeroes award for ‘working together’.
