Mental Health: Forward Thinking – Delivering the Strategy
ERS Medical was pleased to attend and exhibit at the ‘Mental Health: Forward Thinking – Delivering the Strategy’ event in London last week. The event, organised by Open Forum Events, brought together healthcare professionals to provide an insight into how ‘The Five Year Forward View for Mental Health’ Report will be commissioned, funded, delivered and inspected across the whole of the NHS and wider public sector.
During the event ERS Medical’s Head of Care gave his ‘Delivering patients not problems’ presentation focusing on how patient transport services are working towards an integrated service to reduce costs for the NHS and emergency services. He also discussed the importance of challenging the industry’s perception on the best way to transport patients and the benefits to both patients and healthcare providers of delivering a specialist mental health service.
Over the past year ERS Medical has been busy raising money for our chosen charity, YoungMinds, and we were pleased to donate a cheque for £8,728.25 at the event.
YoungMinds is the UK’s leading charity committed to improving the emotional wellbeing and mental health of children and young people. Team members organised a number of activities at sites including bake sales, donated clothes and took part in challenges such as Tough Mudder and the Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge. Well done to all team members for their support.
YoungMinds commented, “We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone for their continued support.”
