The Quality Improvement programme for Mental Health, Psychology Services and CAMHS is an ambitious pan-Lothian focus on improving the quality of care provided to persons experiencing issues related to mental distress and ill health. 

The aim is to support and deliver a comprehensive and effective Quality Improvement programme in mental health throughout the Lothian area by April 2018, and so best ensure safe, effective and person centred care for all.  

The collective goal is to deliver the right care, at the right time and in the right place for all patients with mental health difficulties. To drive and support the integration of services and improve the standardisation of clinical tools and outcomes across departments.

The programme is now developing to support Improvement projects across all service and speciality areas. Key to the success of the programme will be evidence of systemic learning from the projects undertaken, no matter how small or large. 

To support this programme, a clinical lead and project manager were appointed in October 2016 and a Mental Health Quality Improvement Steering Group has been established.
