Congratulations to the Memory Clinic Team for winning Psychiatric Team of the Year: Older-age adults at the RCPysch Awards 2022 last week!
Thank you for your continued hard work and dedication, we are proud of you all!
See what the judges said below:
“The Memory Clinic are an outward-looking, collaborative, determined team who will forego the familiar and easy option if it means a better deal for their patients in the long run.
Their memory service has completely changed the way they serve their population, moving from a linear but rigid pathway to a flexible, person-centred model. This has been done in spite of the pandemic, not because of it and the driver for this whole change was clinicians wondering if there was a better way of working.
This project shows that it is possible to maintain quality of care and high patient satisfaction whilst also improving efficiency both in terms of costing and also timescale. This was done with no extra resources but with passion, innovation and determination from all involved.
The judges were very impressed by the innovative approach of a service redesign taken by the Memory Service, resulting in impressive outcomes and feedback from staff and patients without any additional costs involved.”
