Fiona Mackenzie & Helen FoxFiona Mackenzie & Helen Fox

Fiona Mackenzie described the background and context of the programme within NHS Scotland and the process for the application of the MH Tool highlighting the triangulation process which is mandatory for all Boards within NHS Scotland.

Helen described the process for application of the tool, potential pitfalls and provided feedback from her local board area following the national run of the mental health tool.

"If the workload tool is not right then practitioners will not use it. How the tool works depends on different patients needing different care. This tool will improve outcomes and also by using professional judgement"
