Getting The Measure Right Free Events

We are offering health practitioners a unique opportunity to meet with key professionals and develop best practice in primary care mental health with 2 free events during the month of May.

Each event will help health boards to benchmark how they are progressing in developing services under Part 1 of the Measure, to share best practice and use a panel of experienced professionals from across Wales to assist managers and staff to develop innovative solutions to problems that have been encountered.

Our "Getting the Measure Right!" interactive, half-day events support the implementation of Part 1 of the Mental Health (Wales) Measure and are aimed at:

  • Managers
  • Team Leaders
  • Primary Care Mental Health Support Staff at all levels
  • Policy Makers
  • GPs
  • Health Boards
  • Local Authorities
  • Third Sector

We would encourage boards to send staff from all levels to ensure the learning reflects the reality of how their services run and are also looking to benefit from the experience of practice-based staff, team leaders and managers.

The first event is due to take place on 2nd May 2013 at Technium OpTIC in St Asaph followed a week later by a second event on 9th May 2013 at the Richard Ley Development Centre in Swansea.

Each day will involve an intense and practical meeting with concrete and effective outputs which will make a difference to both staff and patients and places are limited so please book early.
