Positive data indicates success of No Force First

18 May 2017

Our latest data for No Force First has indicated fantastic progress from our clinical teams as we move towards a restraint free future.

Figures suggest that across our divisions, as we have moved forward with taking the process to all of our inpatient areas, have seen a really impressive 25% reduction in the use of physical intervention to support people at times of distress since April 2016. We are also seeing incredibly important reductions in the number and severity of assaults on staff. We are immensely proud of our in-patient units and their work with people using their services to develop new person centred, compassionate and less restrictive approaches, creating these safer environments for all.
