Reputable Award for Forth Valley Mental Health Services

Reputable Award for Forth Valley Mental Health Services

The Royal College of Psychiatrists also known as (RCP) awarded accreditation for two mental health wards at Forth Valley Royal Hospital for their continuous commitment to providing high-quality care.

Forth Valley Royal Hospital achieved this recognition by ensuring staff in wards 2 and 3 in the Mental Health Unit had to meet around 300 standards and display their attentiveness and dedication to providing high-quality treatment and care. The dedication to delivering this level of care required maintenance and took more than two years to achieve.

NHS Forth Valley’s Associate Medical Director for Mental Health and Consultant in General Adult Psychiatry, also known as Dr. Jim Crabb, said “Like the rest of the population, local staff has been impacted personally and professionally by the Covid-19 pandemic, but they continued to work tirelessly to care for some of the most vulnerable members of society. The fact that they have managed to develop a demonstrably excellent service and achieve accreditation whilst facing the many challenges of the last two years is simply awe-inspiring.

“In addition to the RCP accreditation, we also recently received a letter of commendation from NHS Education for Scotland regarding the outstandingly positive feedback we have received from our medical trainees. The fact that our trainees feel so well supported reflects extremely well on local mental health services in NHS Forth Valley.”

 

Presently there are only two other Mental Health facilities throughout Scotland that have managed to gain accreditation status and since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic that began at the beginning of February 2020, there has been a high increase in the number of individuals experiencing severe mental illness. One of them is Psychosis, which requires individuals to be admitted to the hospital for intensive inpatient care and treatment.

Mr. Crabb voiced his thanks to everyone involved in helping to achieve accreditation saying that accreditation was not only an immense boost for all local healthcare professionals but also an exceptionally positive message for recruitment throughout the NHS.
