Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys NHS Foundation Trust

Teesside University worked with Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys NHS Foundation Trust to develop Excellence in Practice Accreditation Scheme (EPAS) accreditation for mental health workers who help older people.

Over 800 workers have now completed EPAS with Level 5 accreditation at the University, achieving some of the highest scores ever attained. They are all members of local teams who look after the Trust’s mental health services for older people. The teams work across Easington, Hartlepool, Stockton, Middlesbrough and Redcar and Cleveland.

The Mental Health Services for Older People division is unique – all the teams working within a locality were accredited as a whole unit against the EPAS standards. Previously other organisations have been accredited as smaller or single teams.

EPAS measures standard of practice and helps practitioners to demonstrate how they are providing good practice and quality service. Each locality has separate teams responsible for in-patient care, community mental health, care home liaison, acute care liaison and young onset dementia.
