Why is Starwards important for North East Lincolnshire and NAViGO?
Many will know that mental health services in Grimsby have changed dramatically since 2006 when Starwards was introduced to the inpatient wards at Diana princess of Wales Hospital. Over the years as services developed it moved to the Harrison House Site.
We are familiar services to the local people, often the first place people turn to in any sort of crisis but also offering a 24/7hr service. 1:3 people will have a mental health problem in their lifetime and for us its so important that we offer the best service that we can and one that we would want our families to use. Star Wards is much loved by patients and staff who, have used it to transform care. The money raised will be used to improve life for people on inpatients wards – both staff and patients and to support the small charity www.starwards.org.uk
You might be wondering – what difference does Star Wards actually make to mental health wards? It’s a question we continuously ask ourselves, to make sure that we are having a positive impact. Well, we have over 800 wards signed up to receive our resources and, in the past, we have had Star Wards independently evaluated. A micro-summary of what our users have said is that wards who tried Star Wards ideas had:
Increased activities for patients in 88%
Increased patient satisfaction in 77%
Decrease in aggression in 60%
