BMH devises new ways to improve system

PIG meetingBristol Mental Health (BMH) is always looking for new ways to develop the system so that it continues to provide the best possible mental health care to the people of Bristol. Recently, the decision was made to form a Performance & Improvement Group (PIG), with one aspect of its role to oversee the delivery of improvement projects, as part of the system's revised governance structure.

An initial PIG workshop was held in late July and made up of service users, carers, clinicians, BMH staff and GPs. Everyone discussed three priority areas that had been set by the BMH Partnership Committee for the PIG to focus on: engagement/interface between primary and secondary care; BMH culture; and communications/stakeholder engagement. Three separate project groups will be formed to focus on these areas which will report into the PIG. Attendees also shared ideas about what the structure of the PIG and project groups should look like going forward.

BMH will take intelligence gathered during this session to the next Partnership Committee meeting in September. Following this, the system will establish the PIG and project groups, the first meetings of which should take place this autumn.
