South West Yorks FT nurse to advise NICE

  • Comment

A mental health nurse from South West Yorkshire Partnership Foundation Trust has been chosen to help shape national guidance on the treatment of young people with schizophrenia and psychosis.

Darryl Thompson will be part of 13-strong group tasked with developing and writing guidelines for the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence.

The group, which includes patients and carers, will make a series of recommendations aimed at boosting recognition of the conditions in under 18s, encouraging earlier treatment and improving care for this vulnerable group.

“I was keen to be part of this work to support the promotion of best possible practice for young people developing a potentially life changing health problem at such a crucial stage of personal development,” said Mr Thompson, whose specialist area is early intervention in psychosis.

He will also help ensure best practice at the trust and keep colleagues up to date on the latest research.
