To support the preparations for Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have made changes to the services we provide
The Early Intervention in Psychosis Pathway supports people aged between 14-65 and their families/carers, who are experiencing – or at risk of experiencing – their first episode of psychosis.
The team offer early treatment which can include medication, talking therapies and employment or education support which is proven to reduce the number of hospital admissions and promote recovery.
The accreditation process included both self and peer reviews before consideration by the Royal College of Psychiatrist’s Accreditation Committee. The service was measured against national standards for early intervention in psychosis.
Gary Jones, Pathway Lead said; “Certified accreditation assures patients, carers, frontline staff, commissioners, managers, and regulators that our Early Intervention in Psychosis service is a high quality service and that our staff are committed to improving care”.
Cathy Riley, Managing Director, Shropshire, added “This is a real achievement by the team who have worked exceptionally hard to meet all the accreditation criteria. It is very well deserved”.
