With the SCIE (Social Care Institute for Excellence) second annual Co-production Week and Festival around the corner, POhWER was the subject of their weekly blog and the exciting examples of work we are doing in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.

The blog writes about the ‘Ideal Ward Round’ Project. The idea came for the Ideal Ward Round is a project in conjunction with the Involvement Centre at Duncan Mac Millan House, volunteers, and carers is aimed at making a really difference to changing the way ward rounds are conducted.


James Shutt Community Manager recalls how the project came about “A question that's bothered me for a long time: could a co-produced project between patients, carers and willing professionals – a real group of ‘outsiders’ – make a tangible difference to the experience of being on an acute mental health ward? Well, I realised it was bothering quite a few other people too.”


The group was set up in 2014 and through the hard work of everyone involved, the scheme is not being piloted in several wards across Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust.
