The Trust’s new recovery Care Programme Approach (CPA) training team are being celebrated after training more than 800 staff on the new process.

The team, made up of service user and carer experts by experience, IT trainers and clinicians have spent 168 hours, equivalent to seven full days, delivering training to staff across the Trust.

The training for the new CPA was underpinned by the theory and practice of recovery and each session was facilitated by a clinician, IT trainer and a service user or carer. Feedback from the training sessions has been overwhelmingly positive.

Jane Kelly, Director of Recovery, said: “I believe every member of the training team has shown such a massive commitment to improving the lives of service users who are engaged with ELFT.

“The experts by experience have produced some amazing and inspirational stories to ensure that staff understand the impact they have on the lives of others. I’d like to thank the whole team for their dedication.”
