Productive Mental Health Ward

The Productive Mental Health Ward

The Productive Mental Health Ward: Releasing time to care builds on the success of the Productive Ward. Around 80% of trusts have already signed up to the Productive Ward programme. Against this background, the NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement has been working with nurses and therapists to develop ways to increase the amount of direct care time given to patients in mental health wards.

The Productive Mental Health Ward programme is designed to help achieve this by improving the effectiveness, safety and reliability of mental health wards.

Sites that have helped develop and test the programme report that their expectations have been exceeded and that their staff have been empowered and enthused to make challenging changes to the way they work.

Adopting The Productive Mental Heath Ward will enable local providers and commissioners to compare the performance of their local mental health facilities with that of others, learn from the best and make positive improvements for patients.
