Enabling safe care

Enabling safe care is one of the East Midlands Alliance for Mental Health, Learning Disabilities and Autism's strategic priorities.


The East Midlands Alliance works in partnership with Health Innovation East Midlands to run a region-wide Patient Safety programme involving leads from all six provider member organisations.


The Patient Safety programme has five priority areas:


  • Reducing restrictive practice


  • Reducing suicide and self-harm


  • Sexual safety


  • Mechanical restraint


  • Patient Safety Incident Response Framework


Each priority has a Community of Practice through which innovation and learning is shared.  The overall programme places a heavy priority on the voice of lived experience.


The Alliance worked with Health Innovation East Midlands to review practical experiential learning on the use of visual technology in mental health.
