Well done to Nottingham I.M.P.S. who have been highlighted as one of the areas of outstanding practice by the Care Quality Commission in its inspection report for Nottingham University Hospital.
In the words of the CQC…
“We saw several areas of outstanding practice including:
- The trust was delivering an Injury Minimisation Programme for Schools (I.M.P.S.) in partnership with schools and a public health organisation.
educating children aged 10 and 11 to recognise potentially dangerous situations and prevent injuries. Small groups of children from Nottingham city schools attended the children’s emergency department each morning to learn first aid and resuscitation skills, helping them to respond effectively to accidents and take safe risks. More than 2,300 children received health education through this programme each year”
